Our Mission

At The Tiki Turtle, a vocational training cafe at the Arc of Hilo, we are on a mission to create a world of inclusivity and empowerment by expanding opportunities for individuals with disabilities. We firmly believe that every person deserves the chance to flourish and showcase their unique talents, regardless of their abilities. Through our vocational training cafe, we strive to provide a supportive and nurturing environment where individuals with disabilities can thrive and grow personally and professionally. By honing their culinary skills and gaining hands-on experience in a real-world setting, our team members develop confidence, independence, and a profound sense of accomplishment. We are committed to breaking down barriers and fostering a community that celebrates diversity, recognizing that each individual's contribution adds to the vibrant tapestry of society. Together, we pave the way for a brighter, more inclusive future, one delicious dish at a time!
