There are two ways in which to participate, either as a Team Member (Must be 17 years and older) or as a Team Leader (Must be 21 years and older). No prior environmental experience is necessary, instead the ideal applicant is someone with a positive attitude, that is interested in learning, curious about nature and has a desire to assist their community through hands-on service.

Members will be exposed to a variety of ecosystems, natural resource management techniques and cultural practices. Participants can expect to gain valuable experiential education, to build close relationships with their peers and industry professionals, to further develop their own personal skills in the areas of leadership, organization, team work, and decision-making. Better preparing them for the future, no matter the industry or profession they decide to pursue.

This experience is a unique opportunity to grow, spending a summer outdoors within some of the most stunning natural locations that Hawai‘i has to offer and making a positive impact on that community and it’s environment.
