Community Service

In Hawaii understanding the connection between culture and conservation is the first step to making positive change. You will work alongside local cultural practitioners and environmentalists restoring sea turtle habitats and learning how ecosystem management from mountain to sea impacts the turtle population of this entire state!

Immersive Learning

You’ll hear straight from the experts about issues affecting local populations such as climate change, indigenous land rights, and conservation of endemic species. Visit the National Tropical Botanical Garden, and learn about the preservation and history of plant species important to Hawaii. You’ll also have a chance to see what is believed to be the largest man-made structure in Polynesia. Finally, finish your amazing time in Hawaii with a traditional Polynesian Luau where you will taste some of the most famous dishes of Hawaii and enjoy an evening of dancing and storytelling.

Adventure

Journey along the world-famous Road to Hana, a wild and scenic route along the island’s rugged east coast — stop along the way to explore lush botanical gardens and remote waterfalls. With more than 30 miles of beaches to choose from, the island is the perfect place to try your hand at surfing or observe brightly colored fish while snorkeling. Take in Hawaii’s breathtaking landscape and natural beauty from a new perspective: from the water, while you take a ride on a performance sailboat. Then cool off with a cup of shave ice, a favorite island treat.

Lodging

Home Base is a set of comfortable, modest, ocean front A-frame cabins in a beautiful, camp-like atmosphere with a shared bathroom area. On the day-to-day, meals are healthy and balanced and will consist primarily of typical American fare (sandwiches, salads, pastas, chicken, etc.) We will also have the opportunity to sample more traditional Hawaiian cuisine and local produce.
