The Hawaiʻi Youth Conservation Corps – Summer (HYCC Summer) program offers individuals the chance to gain restoration experience in a supportive team environment. Participants are assigned to a specific island and spend the summer months working outdoors at various environmental organizations.
The HYCC Summer Program is designed for young adults who are interested in exploring environmental work and education. The program is an outdoor summer experience in which individuals work together as teams to complete hands-on fieldwork at various Host Sites across their respective islands
"Working with Kupu this summer helped me to gain so much knowledge about the conservation field in Hawaiʻi"
"Although our time at each site was brief, I believe that this summer was the greatest I've ever had."
"The one thing I discovered and rediscovered throughout my summer was truly living mālama honua through and through."
"My experience of hard work that makes an impact in our state is a reward all on its own."
