Hawai'i Green Collar Institute Fall 2020 (Modified Program) Application
Aloha! This is an application for participation in the Hawai'i Green Collar Institute (HGCI) program coordinated by the Mālama Learning Center during the DOE Fall Break for Leeward O'ahu high school students in grades 10-12 particularly from the Kapolei and 'Ewa regions. The program dates are October 5-7, 2020 and this three-day, virtual-based program will focus on the 'Ewa 'Āina Inventory - Environmental Issues and Careers in 'Ewa Moku, with the goal of exposing local students to the breadth of "green" careers in Hawai'i through virtual learning experiences that build capacity and interest in environmental conservation. Each day will feature fun lessons, guest speakers, and hands-on activities from about 8am-12pm (times vary on different days) held via Zoom. Huaka‘i (field trips) to sites in ‘Ewa will be tentatively planned for Winter Break 2020 if it’s safe to do so at that time. We will accept qualified applications as we get them so best to apply early!

Please complete the application form using your own words and to the best of your ability by September 23, 2020. We will continue to recruit until the program is filled. You will be notified by September 25 on whether or not you're selected for this program. There will be a refundable $25 program fee due to Mālama Learning Center after notification of acceptance into this program to reserve your spot, this fee will be refunded to you for full participation in the three online dates. Students from the 'Ewa and Kapolei regions will be given preference to align with grant objectives from the Kamehameha Schools 'Ewa Region that are subsidizing most costs. Students from other districts are welcome to apply and will be accepted based on space availability.

If you have any questions about the program, please email Chelsey Jay at chelsey@malamalearningcenter.org.
