Huliau Youth Leaders

HYL slider 2013

What is Huliau Youth Leaders?
Huliau Youth Leaders is a student-led environmental leadership group that plans activities and events for Maui youth from all schools.  These projects are planned by a group of 11-12th grade students from different schools to raise awareness about the environmental issues that face our island and come up with creative and fun solutions.  Below you can find pages we created about different environmental issues, find internships and volunteer opportunities, and see which projects and events we are planning. We also post updates in our Facebook group.

Huliau Youth Leaders Projects & Events

Eat Local Video Project

For our final project of the school year we lived on a farm together and ate only food grown on Maui for 4 days. We made this film about our experience and about the farms, supermarkets and other places where our food comes from.

Come see our fish at Art of Trash!
