An Opportunity to Learn, Grow, and Serve Both `Āina and Community
Spend 2 Months Working and Learning with the Partnership for a $500 Stipend and $3500 Tuition Support
The Alaka`i Summer Internship Program provides an opportunity to recruit undergraduate students from University of Hawai`i campuses with strong ties to the `Ewa Moku and a compelling interest in developing their capacity to implement `āina-based, community driven change for a summer experience that focuses on:
Collaboration and learning opportunities grounded in Hawaiian knowledge systems
Skill building in the areas of research, story-telling, landscape/watershed analysis, GIS technology, community engagement/empowerment and network building
Experiential learning grounded in mālama `āina and self care (mālama pono`i)
We are seeking eager, highly motivated interns who want to grow in their capacity to create change - to become alaka`i (a leader, one who leads by example). Together we will create tools that contribute to moku-wide ahupua`a health, equitable food security and community empowerment.
Please consider our Graduate Assistant Leaderʻs personal invitations to apply!
