The Mission of the National Pacific American Leadership Institute (NAPALI) is to identify, train, and nurture Pacific American Emerging Leaders.
NAPALI is unique in that it conducts the only leadership program in the nation that integrates the leadership values of Pacific American cultures and Western Society.
It is committed to making a difference in the quality of life of Americans who trace their ancestry to the indigenous peoples of the Pacific islands - American Samoans, Chamorros, Fijians, Maoris, Native Hawaiians, Tongans, Tahitians, and others connected with Pacific American cultures.
NAPALI is a nonprofit tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The National Pacific American Leadership Institute conducted its inaugural class in June 1998 in partnership with the internationally and nationally acclaimed Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management at Claremont, CA.
The second class met at the Kapiolani Community College, Honolulu, Hawai'i on August 6 - 11, 2000. In attendance were sixteen Fellows, three Pacific American cultural elders, distinguished professors of the University of Hawai'i, and a support staff of dedicated professionals.
Since then, 278 Fellows have graduated from The National Pacific American Leadership Institute.
NAPALI, the acronym for the National Pacific American Leadership Institute, is the Hawaiian word for “the cliffs.” It is an appropriate image of our mission, for leaders
ascend to the heights and their vision extends into the far horizon.
