The Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay is aware that it is never too early to make people aware of the goals and hopes of Rotary for the future. Global literacy is a Rotary International goal that starts at home.In 2012 over 5000 age appropriate books were distributed to schools on the North Shore and across the island. 

Among the club's initiatives to reach out to, and help, our community's young people are:
• Distribution of dictionaries to every third-grader
• Distribution of fiction and non-fiction books to every child in grades one through six
• Distribution of backpacks, crayons, pencils and other supplies to elementary schools
• Awarding a prize to the student in each grade who writes the best book review 
• Tutoring students in reading

The Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay started a project to help improve the classroom experience. Classroom Angels are working with school administrators, teachers students and parents to help our kids have an opportunity to learn.

The Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay has created three ways to become involved in the two elementary schools on the North Shore, Kilauea and Hanalei. You can volunteer to:

1. Tutor a Student, one-on-one or in a small group, in reading or math, at the school, for at least 30 minutes one day a week,

2. Sponsor a Classroom, simply by writing a check for $700 to pay for supplies and fund a field trip, or

3. Adopt a Classroom, by writing a check for $700, volunteering to tutor for at least one hour a week, planning a field trip and working with the teacher and parents to improve student performance.
