For Immediate Release

Registration is currently underway for the Spring 2012 Lifelong Learning program at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo North Hawaiʻi Education and Research Center (NHERC) in Honoka`a.

The program, now in its sixth year, is offering various classes reflecting the needs of the community, including an American Sign Language series. Another class expected to attract a lot of interest is Couponing, which has become the latest market trend. Brandi Baji, the founder of “Hilo Coupon Moms,” will teach Couponing Levels 1 & 2 in Hilo, Honoka`a, and Kona.

Back by popular demand are both the Basic and Advanced Grant Writing classes held in Kona. The Basic class teaches participants about the grant writing process, how to write a compelling statement of need, and learn what funders are looking for in grant proposals. The Advanced class teaches fine-tuning grant writing skills and getting an edge over the competition. Instructor Jeani Navarro has over 30 years of grant writing experience and has helped various community organizations secure needed funding.

Advanced registration is required and space is limited. To register or for more information, call NHERC at 775-8890.
