The AKAMAI Finance Academy High School Chapter Program


The AFA - HS Chapter is an after school organization that offers additional education and training, which supplements the curriculum taught in school. An AKAMAI Finance Academy Chapter may be established in any middle or high school in the state of Hawaii.

Local chapters, operating under a charter granted by The AKAMAI Foundation, conduct their activities within the framework of the parent organization.

The purpose of the AFA - HS Chapter  is to provide opportunities for students to develop vocational competencies for finance and finance-related occupations as well as business teacher education.  The AFA - HS Chapter promotes a sense of “kuleana” (responsibility) for community service and servant leadership, and an awareness and healthy respect for the host culture of Hawaii.

    

The specific goals of the AFA - HS Chapter are to: 
  • Increase student awareness of career opportunities in the finance industry.
  • Create a clear, mentored career pathway into the finance industry.
  • Contribute to the improvement of their community through community service related activities.
  • Cultivate relationships with businesses in the community.
  • Develop competent, civic-minded future financial executives.
  • Strengthen the confidence of students in themselves.
  • Promote a sense of fellowship and loyalty among members of the AFA - HS Chapter  and their school.
AFA - HS Chapters provide a fun and challenging catalyst for student motivation in all classes, connect high school courses to live action in global markets and economies.  We have seen lackluster students become energized all through their schooling once they see a fun and potentially lucrative ‘Why.’
