New Maui Conservation Leaders Internship Program
Applications are now being accepted for a new college internship program designed to develop Maui’s next generation of conservation leaders.
Nā Hua Hoʻohuli i ka Pono program is funded by Hauʻoli Mau Loa Foundation, a private Honolulu-based grant making organization. The program will work in partnership with State agencies and Kupu, an established non-profit organization that works statewide to link youth with conservation organizations year-round.
Two positions are available for students who are interested in careers in natural resources management and protection and invasive species management.
Applicants will be selected through a competitive process which includes a formal application, criminal history check, and interview. Interns will earn a bi-weekly living allowance of $475 and may be eligible to earn an AmeriCorps Education Award that may be applied toward higher education costs or student loans.
Interested candidates must be available for 19 hours a week from Oct. 3, 2016 through May 26, 2017. Work days are generally Monday through Friday, but may include some night and weekend hours depending on the agency’s needs. Students are responsible for their own transportation and housing accommodations.
Completed applications and all required documents must be received by 4 p.m. on July 18, 2016.
