Huliau Eco-Adventure is a 4 day hands-on introduction to environmental studies for students entering grades 7-9. Students will engage in experiential learning through fun group explorations of Maui’s unique environments. The program is planned and led by Huliau alumni in collaboration with our staff, our high school leadership team, and experts in various environmental fields. The program was started by two alumni in 2013 and this summer they are passing the torch to two new alumni who are currently planning the 2017 program. We are thrilled to continue to build leadership among our students and alumni, and we are honored that they wish to give back to their community in this way! This is an alumni-led tradition that we hope to continue each summer as our Huliau ʻohana grows. As with all Huliau programs, need-based scholarships are offered, making this program affordable for all Maui youth!  Your donation will be matched to help us raise the $2,000 in remaining funded needed to provide this program for 36 students including any need-based scholarship requests. To learn more about the program or to refer a student visit the program webpage.
