Huliau Leadership Council

The Huliau Leadership Council was launched in the 2017-18 school year. The program is open to students in grades 9-12 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 council projects are open to other students in grades 7-12. Updates on these projects and signup forms for other students will be added to this page throughout the school year as projects are planned. See below for example projects from last school year.

This year’s program is tentatively scheduled to begin on September 4th and will meet the first Wednesday of the month from 4-6pm at Hawaiian Canoe Club.

The application deadline is August 28th and applicants will be notified by August 30th. Students will be selected based on their answers to application questions, their interest in environmental leadership, and their performance in past Huliau programs (if applicable).
