Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome to join in and help. Whether you are a student, teacher, artist, businessperson, retiree -- there is something you could do to help. You could help with specific projects such as restoring natural areas, selling products at our farmers' and green market, Mākeke Kapolei, growing plants in our nursery, speaking to groups, helping at community events, creating presentation materials like brochures, designing artwork, writing content for our website, or sharing your musical talent with us at a fund-raiser or teaching event.
There is no limit to how you can help! Another great aspect of volunteering is that your sweat equity can be used to match some grants...so in a real way, volunteers are donors. Please contact us at email@example.com or (808) 305-8287 if you have something to offer.
We welcome community members of all ages and abilities to volunteer with our diverse range of projects, but we'd like to get to know you! To better gauge and understand what kind of opportunities volunteers are interested in, please fill out ourMālama Learning Center Volunteer In-Take Form.
Volunteer Opportunities Through Mālama Learning Center:
Mākeke Kapolei Farmers' Market (every Thursday 3pm-6:30pm @ Kapolei High School parking lot): Mālama Learning Center, Wai'anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, and Kapolei High School are partnering to provide the community with Mākeke Kapolei, a weekly farmers' and green market. Live, eat, and learn sustainably! Volunteers are welcome to help us at our MLC booth to set up and breakdown, conduct outreach activities, and sell native plants and other "green" items.
Kapolei High School Nursery: Love plants? Learn how to propagate and care for plants utilizing both organic and conventional methods through volunteering at the Kapolei High School nursery, which houses a variety of native and introduced Hawaiian plants as well as fruits and vegetables.
Piliokahe Beach Park Restoration & Outreach Workdays: Help us to restore a section of the park with native Hawaiian plants to control erosion, beautify the area, and engage the community in creating healthy environments. Volunteers are needed to pick up litter and marine debris, remove invasive species in the restoration section, and plant native Hawaiian coastal plants.
Nanakuli Muliwai Community Workdays: We are embarking on a new project to help educate students, teachers, and community members about water quality and more importantly, how to sustain clean water. We have chosen to focus our efforts on the infamous "Stink Pond" in Nānākuli and how we can study this place to inform how we take care of it.
