Call to Educators -- Hawaii Green Collar Institute

From: Malama Learning Center


We would appreciate your help in recruiting participants for an exciting new program for Leeward Oahu's high school and college students regarding "green" jobs. Please see the message below and the links to application materials for the Hawai'i Green Collar Institute.

For more information, please contact me directly or


The Hawai‘i Green Collar Institute (HGCI) is now open for Leeward O‘ahu high school and college students. HGCI’s new program will introduce students to environmental and climate change issues in their communities and open doors to future jobs in environmental or “green collar” careers.

Over four weekends spanning five months (October to March), students will visit sites on O‘ahu to learn about food security, waste and recycling, energy, and the health of our oceans and streams. On these visits, they'll gain hands-on experience with jobs that relate to each site and also interact with professionals to better understand those jobs. They'll also work in teams to complete an educational project that benefits their community.

Upon completion of the program, including a group project, students will receive an award of $200 as well as exposure to many new jobs that take care of our island home.

To apply, students must complete an application and submit two reference forms, all due on September 1, 2010.
