Apply for the Hawai'i Green Collar Institute (HGCI) Aloha ʻĀina Internship program today!
This program is coordinated by the Mālama Learning Center during the DOE Spring Break for West O'ahu high school students in grades 9-12. There are 10 available spots. The program dates are March 18-22, 2024, in-person from 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM. This five-day spring break internship program will expose students to a variety of restoration sites from mauka to makai. The goal is to expose local students to the breadth of "green" careers in Hawai'i through engaging learning experiences to further develop their understanding of mālama ʻāina through our work at various restoration sites and native plant nurseries as well as at partner sites. Each day, students will have an opportunity to visit a different ʻāina site. We will accept qualified applications as we get them so best to apply early!
Aloha ʻĀina Interns can earn a $500 stipend if they complete at least 40 hours of approved ʻāina-based volunteer service. Through this internship, students will earn up to 28 hours of volunteer service during Spring Break. Students who successfully complete additional requirements will also be eligible to receive an ʻĀina-Based Education Certificate for Haumāna.
There will be a $25 deposit due to Mālama Learning Center after notification of acceptance into this program to reserve your spot. This deposit is refundable if you participate fully during Spring Break. We will provide transportation to and from our huaka'i sites from Kapolei High School (our meeting location each day).
