Double your donation on Giving Tuesday!
Help us raise $10,000 by December 31st to support our environmental education programs for Maui youth! You can help by donating here if you are not on Facebook, or by donating to one of our Facebook fundraisers on November 28th for Giving Tuesday! On Giving Tuesday Facebook is waiving all donation fees and the Gates Foundation will be matching all donations to Facebook fundraisers up to $1,000 each. This means that you can also host your own fundraiser for Maui Huliau programs and ANY amount that you raise on that day (up to $1,000) will be doubled in support of our programs! Contact us at email@example.com for details. Links to these Facebook fundraisers will be posted here Thanksgiving weekend.
Help us meet our $10,000 goal!
About our Programs for Maui Youth
Now in its 7th school year, our filmmaking club has involved hundreds of students from 16 schools on Maui in creating more than 55 short environmental films from documentaries to music videos. These films have been selected more than 60 times in festivals around the world and have won multiple awards!
The Huliau Outdoor Leadership Council is our newest program launched in the 2017-18 school year. This year’s council members are in grades 11-12 and come from 5 different Maui schools. They meet monthly to plan overnight programs, service projects and other environmental leadership projects open to students in grades 7-12.
One of our most exciting program developments in the past two years is our alumni-led Huliau Eco-Adventure. In the summer of 2015 two alumni from our 2013 Maui Eat Local Project designed a summer leadership program for high school students. Last summer they expanded the program to serve 30 middle school students and involved the high school participants in leading the program!
Huliau Green Events is one of our newest programs launched in 2016. Our staff and students work with large events to divert over 80% of waste from the landfill by staffing zero waste stations, replacing single-use plastic, composting and recycling. Make your next event zero waste!
The Huliau Climate Literacy Project is our newest program launched in fall 2017! The mission of the project is to work with science teachers in grades 7-12 to integrate hands-on climate literacy activities into their curriculum in alignment with Next Generation Science Standards.
Our other programs for Maui youth include our annual 4 day backpacking trip through Haleakalā crater and our student-led “plastic free projects” such as #Sporkitup and Ocean Friendly Restaurants.
