The Po‘okela program is for clients in the Therapeutic Living Programs. Clients are taught the value of having a vision, setting goals and the steps needed to accomplish those goals. Clients are looking at career options of interest, what is needed to pursue that career, identifying costs and benefits of these career choices to ensure they are worth pursuing. Clients are taught about Hawaiian values, proverbs and ancestors, bringing a cultural outlook on paving a pathway for success.
As the largest client ethnic group served by BISAC, Hawaiian culture, values and beliefs are reflected in many areas of BISAC services; however, every effort is made to integrate other cultural practices, values and belief systems where possible.
