Organized in 1965, the Hawaii Council on Economic Education (HCEE) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase the economic literacy of Hawai'i's students and residents. HCEE implements its mission primarily by promoting and improving the teaching of economic concepts in Hawai'i's public, charter & private schools through teacher training programs and providing grade level K-12 appropriate programs and teaching materials.
Our vision is a State of Hawaii whose people have the knowledge, understanding, and skills to make informed economic choices in their lives and for their community.
HCEE has been providing economic and personal finance professional development opportunities for educators for the past 54 years. With a rich and successful programmatic history, we have provided over 60,000 hours of hands-on economic and financial literacy training to Hawai'i's educators. Many of our trained educators have locally, as well as nationally, been recognized as Master Economic Educators.
We are the only statewide organization dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of economics in Hawaii's public and private K-12 schools.
