Huliau Outdoor Leadership Council
The Huliau Outdoor Leadership Council is our newest program launched in the 2017-18 school year. The program is open to students in grades 10-12 from all Maui schools who have an interest in environmental leadership. Members meet monthly to plan service projects and other environmental leadership projects. These projects are scheduled by the council members and will take place on occasional weekends and after school in addition to normal meetings. Some projects that they coordinate are open to other students in grades 7-12 as decided on by council members. Updates on these projects and signup forms for other students will be added to this page throughout the school year as projects are planned.
Information on our 2019-2020 program will be added here in August.
In the meantime, interested students can apply using the button to the right and we will contact you in August. This year we are opening up the program to younger students starting in grade 9.
