The Voices of Pacific Island Nations (VOPIN) is committed to inspiring Pasefika (Pacific Islander) students and families by providing high-quality, culturally responsive services and resources to eliminate educational and opportunity inequities. We serve as a bridge to develop stronger relationships between students, families, schools, and the community.

This week, we were honored to have Megan Burton, STEM and Learning Supervisor of Kitsap Regional Library, join Voices of Pacific Island Nations (VOPIN)'s Navigating Education after school program at Bremerton High School! Megan generously shared valuable insights on internship opportunities and provided expert guidance on resume building to empower our students.

Eliza Evans, our dedicated VOPIN volunteer, and John Perkins, our newest staff member, joined our Navigating Education afterschool program to meet our students and lead experiential activities focused on positive youth development and cultivating strong relationships.

We are grateful to share a moment of inspiration from our recent Together for Education fundraiser, featuring a compelling speech by VOPIN Intern, Keion Clark. Keion emphasizes the vital role of unity and support for education in Pacific Island communities. His speech is a poignant reminder that our collective efforts can make a lasting impact on the lives of those in need.
