As breathtaking as Hawaii’s paradise might be, it faces its own environmental and economic challenges. On this student community service program in Hawaii, teens have the opportunity to make a difference by helping run activities at a day camp for children, preserving the environment and learning about endangered sea turtles. You’ll also learn about Hawaiian culture and gain an appreciation of the Hawaiian people and their way of life. This Hawaii student tour uses a service-learning framework where our staff provide guidance and reflection on the impact of the work we do throughout the program and promote the value of empathy and cultural sensitivity. Beautiful weather, beaches, and scenery along with some radical surfing are just a huge bonus on this community service program. By the time of your final banquet dinner, you will be a close-knit ohana and wishing you could prolong your stay to help even more!
This 14-day program is a portion of our longer 21-day Hawaii Community Service program.
