In June HOK announced an exciting travel & work opportunity for our Outreach Coordinator, Sanna, to join the Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program on a journey to the North Western Hawaiian islands (NWHI) in the Papahānaumokuāea Marine National Monuments. Sanna spent the month of June training with the program and deployed in mid-July to Lisianski Island, also known my its Hawaiian name Papa‘āpoho, with two other team members. She spent her days walking the shores of the 384 acre island, counting monk seals, and assessing their health. Join us as Sanna shares stories and photos from her journey!

Kupu is proud to announce that applications are now open for 130 new jobs designed to help both the environment and the economy as part Hawaiʻi’s response to the economic impacts of COVID-19. Governor David Ige and the Hawaiʻi State Legislature approved the use of $5 million in federal funding to support a new Green Jobs Corps. The funding will support the resumption of the Kupu ‘Āina Corps program. The program will be a permanent version of the successful 2020 Kupu ʻĀina Corps program, in which Kupu and the State of Hawaiʻi provided over 350 displaced workers with employment within the Green jobs sector. This program will give those who have been economically disadvantaged by the global pandemic opportunities for career up-skilling and re-skilling in sustainability professions, while also providing Hawai‘i organizations with staffing resources to support their recovery. The program is now accepting applications for both year-long full-time and part-time job applicants and for 'green' organizations interested in serving as host sites for these Kupu ʻĀina Corps members.

Kupu is seeking individuals to participate in their upcoming Hawai‘i Youth Conservation Corps. There are two ways to participate, either as a Team Member or Team Leader. Members are typically between the ages of 17 - 22, and don't necessarily need any prior environmental experience. Instead, the ideal applicant is someone with a positive attitude, is curious about nature, interested in learning, and has a desire to strengthen their community through service. The Team Leaders don’t mind extra responsibility. They are the backbone for the team, responsible for assisting, coordinating and inspiring the members each day. Ideally, the leaders are 21+ years and older, have experience in leading groups and have knowledge pertaining to unique Hawaiʻi native plants, and customs.
Program Duration: June 7th - July 22nd
