The Maui wildfire disaster has claimed the lives of a still-untold number of people and devastated invaluable and unique cultural and historical sites beloved by all who know Hawaiʻi. Our heart aches for Maui, and this is a time for action and response.
The word “Eō” in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, means to call, to uplift, and to respond. In this difficult time for our Maui ʻohana, Kupu recognizes the need for both short-term and long-term response for affected communities. EŌ Maui’s approach centers on paid positions for impacted residents.
Consistent with our strengths and experience in conservation and green jobs, our programs will empower the people of Maui to restore communities and ecosystems at the same time.
EŌ (Emergency Outreach) Maui was created to offer Maui residents paid positions supporting wildlife recovery. Eō Maui opportunities range from supporting community resource providers, to providing students environmental education, and assisting in native ecosystem restoration. Interested individuals may fill out the below applications to be considered for any available position they are interested in.
