2014 Summer InternshipPosted by Keli'i Kotubetey on May 9, 2014
Its back! We are happy to announce another round of our Heʻeia Ahupuaʻa Internship happening this summer from June 2nd to July 25th, 2014. The dates and 8-week duration of the paid summer internship are tailored so that young adults (ages 16-24) can fit this amazing opportunity into their summer schedules. We hope to inspire high school and college-level young adults to possibly pursue a profession in a related field but more important simply become better stewards, champions, and caretakers of our precious island resources and home.
Interns will learn about and participate in activities such as traditional and modern aquaculture at our fishpond, loʻi (wetland) kalo cultivation, native plant identification and propagation, and stream restoration. Activities and experiences will occur mainly in Heʻeia and Koʻolaupoko but longer huakaʻi are definitely possible!
General internship and application specifics are listed on the flyer below. Applications must be postmarked no later than Friday May 16th to be considered. Applicants must be 16 years or older to apply but preference will be given to those between 16 and 24 years old. Please contact us if you have further questions.
