Teens Can Go Green For Spring

If area teenagers are looking for something to keep them busy during the upcoming spring break, Hawaii Green Collar Institute has a fun and informative experience ready.

Its Spring Intercession Program runs from March 18 to 22 and is designed for grades 10-12, introducing them to local environmental issues, as well as future jobs in “green collar” careers.

The program will expose them to ocean conservation and related careers via field trips, hands-on activities and an overnight camping trip.

Students must submit an application form and at least one reference. Preference will be given to those who have not attended previous HGCI sessions, which are based in Kapolei.

Registration deadline is Feb. 25. The $20 fee also covers supplies and meals. The intersession runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with an overnight camping trip scheduled for March 19-20.
