Hui Laulima Service Projects
Huliau students and staff organize quarterly environmental service projects including beach clean-ups, native tree planting, farm work days and more. These trips are open to Maui youth 12-18. We help with transportation and provide supplies, water and snacks. For information on future service projects you can follow us on Facebook or join our community events mailing list.
International Coastal Cleanup Day
In 2016 we participated in our 3rd annual cleanup for International Coastal Cleanup Day on September 17th in partnership with Mālama Maui Nui! We cleaned the beach in front of our Hawaiian Canoe Club program site in Kahului with over 30 volunteers and then joined Mālama Maui Nui on the other side of the harbor to celebrate. We also hosted an ocean-inspired film showing that evening in partnership with POME surf shop.
Huliau Youth Leaders
Huliau Youth Leaders is a series of student-led projects facilitated by Maui Huliau Foundation. To the right you can find our current Film & Activism projects which involve students from our Huliau Environmental Filmmaking Club. Even if you are not in our filmmaking program, you can still help with these projects by joining via Huliau Youth Leaders. You can help with current Film & Activism projects or to suggest your own youth-led environmental project. Participation is flexible and may involve meetings with other students and/or helping with outreach to businesses or at public events. Students who participate each year can also help plan our youth camp during the summer. Students in grades 7-12 who want to help with any of these projects can contact us using the form to the right and we will email you more information.
Haleakalā Backpacking Trips
Maui Huliau now leads annual backpacking trips into Haleakalā Crater. Trips are open to Maui youth ages 12-18 who are enrolled in any of our Huliau programs during that school year or the previous school year. As requested by our students, our 2016 trip is now 4 days and 3 night staying in all 3 cabins! The trip is scheduled for June 23rd-26th (Thursday-Sunday) and is open to a maximum of 10 students. Huliau staff arrange all food and transportation and the fee (usually under $100) is just to cover cabin rental, gas and food. A mandatory pre-trip meeting will be scheduled the week before the trip. Interested students can fill out the form to the right and we will contact you in June to confirm your participation.
