Get To Know Green Collar Jobs

Area students are invited to apply for Hawaii Green Collar Institute’s fall break program to study green careers that are centered around the theme of water.

The program runs from 9a.m.to2p.m.Oct.1-5at Kapolei High School and will focus on streams, oceans and watersheds.

“This course will help students understand environmental issues and investigate the solutions, see real-life work experiences outside of the classroom through field trips, meet interesting people working hard to save the environment, and have fun,” said Pauline Sato, executive and program director of Malama Learning Center. “It’s a great thing to do over fall break.”

Green careers related to water could include a wide range of jobs in areas such as watershed protection, marine biology, wastewater management, native plant propagation and landscaping, wetland conservation and more.

“By being part of this program, students will join a growing movement of young people who will soon become leaders in solving critical sustainability issues for Hawaii,” Sato added.

Applications are due Friday (Sept. 14) and the program fee is $20.
