Celebrating the Accomplishments of 70 Maui & Molokai Residents Working Via the MauiCARES program
Join us on Weds., Jan. 27, at 5:30 pm for a free Zoom event that will immerse you in a virtual experience to feel the importance of Kuleana, ʻOhana, Kōkua, Aloha ʻĀina, Mālama ʻĀina, and Hānai ʻʻĀina.
Share in a celebration of the accomplishments of more than 70 unemployed/underemployed Maui and Molokai residents who found work through the Maui CARES program. They provided seven local conservation nonprofits with needed labor to benefit coral reefs, cultural resources and the environment.
Learn about this unique collaborative employment and workforce training program and the impact it had on our local environment. The presentation will include videos, photos and firsthand accounts of the projects and accomplishments, with information on how the projects incorporated traditional Hawaiian cultural practices and modern technology to prevent sediment pollution in the ocean and protect valuable cultural resources.
