- Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education, is a terrific resource to families. Every year more than $150 billion in new aid is provided to nearly 14 million post-secondary students and their families. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSASM) is the form used to apply for all federal, as well as for many state, regional and private student aid programs. The aid from their programs allows students and their families to cover school expenses, including tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and transportation. For more information, please visit http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.

The Adopt-A-School Program is a voluntary partnership between a school and a military unit. Working in partnership with school officials, a unit formally “adopts” a local elementary, middle or high school. This Partnership develops a mutually beneficial relationship between the Marine Corps and area schools.
Objectives include expanding students’ learning activities, providing students with positive role models and assisting teachers by providing additional resources, alternatives and supplements to classroom learning experiences.
Last year volunteers from MCBH volunteered over 2,800 hours in schools across
the island. Marines & Sailors tutored and mentored students, led students in weekly PT sessions, assisted with Make A Difference Day and campus beautification projects, helped build playgrounds, chaperoned field trips, encouraged students during Jump Rope for Heart and Jog-A-Thons just to name a few. Marines, Sailors, Family members or Civilians interested in volunteering in Public Schools, should call MCB Hawaii’s School Liaison Office at (808)257-2019.
