Community Outreach

Oceanit is an Ohana, we work together as an extended family. It is our commitment to be positive corporate citizens and active members of the communities in which we live and work.

Innovating for our local and global community is an important part of our work. Oceanit believes that access to education and technology is a necessity and we work hard to close the learning gap, providing students and the community with the power to discover better possibilities. We have worked to build the technology industry in Hawaii by coaching teachers and students in robotics, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs.

Oceanit is committed to providing support for humanitarian organizations to help rebuild affected communities and assist families. From groundbreaking projects and research, to sustainable activities in our communities, Oceanit and its employees have participated in fundraisers, donation drives, community activties, job fairs, and much more. Additionally, Oceanit has provided a sustainable working atmosphere by developing products and technologies that are eco-friendly, and implementing business practices that could help reduce and manage our own environmental impact and risks.
