Established in 2007 as a Honolulu-based 501(c)3 non-profit, Kupu empowers future generations to create a more sustainable, pono Hawai‘i. Kupu accomplishes this by partnering with conservation and sustainability focused agencies throughout the state and pacific in providing hands-on service opportunities that educate and mentor youth and young adults to become stewards of our communities and environment. Since 2007, Kupu has risen to meet the increasing demands of the green economy by engaging over 3,000 youth in the areas of conservation, sustainability and environmental education. Kupu affirms the Hawaiian notion of “ma ka hana ka ʻike” or “in working one learns”. This approach has led to the creation of hundreds of service-learning opportunities which blend vocational training and green leadership development to support over 150 conservation and sustainability organizations across Hawaiʻi and the Pacific region. Kupu Mission “To empower youth to serve their communities through character-building, service-learning, and environmental stewardship opportunities that encourage integrity (pono) with Ke Akua, self and others.”
