Learning Endeavors is offering Hawaiʻi high school clubs the opportunity to receive $200 in funding, a resource kit, and ongoing support for a unique coastal stewardship project.

The Champions of Coastal Resilience Call to Action Program is a part of an initiative focused on developing climate stewards that care for coastal communities.

Science, STEM, Media, and/or Environmental Science oriented clubs are encouraged to have a lead student apply online. The deadline for clubs to apply is Feb. 15, 2022.

If selected, each club will design a stewardship project along their coast, possibly at a wetland, beach, dune, or other coastal area.

Learning Endeavors will provide a CCR Resource Kit and three virtual CCR Call to Action support sessions in which clubs can share with peers across the islands and receive more resources and support.
