Le Fetuao Samoan Language Center was founded to address the keen societal pressures faced by Samoan youth in Hawaii and that the Samoan language and culture is rapidly diminishing among Samoans in Hawaii. Le Fetuao offers an alternative for youth to respect their culture, as well as their families and the communities in which they live, and to build a positive future for themselves.
