Want to help us boost volunteer engagement in Hawaiʻi?
Please take our volunteer survey. Itʻs short (5 min) and is geared towards volunteers and organizers. We want to better understand your habits, goals, and challenges so we can design a better online volunteer portal for volunteers and organizers to connect and impact our communities.
We support broadscale community action built on collaborative and equitable relationships.
Kanu Hawaii provides tools and opportunities for people to connect with one another – to take action that builds more compassionate and resilient communities across Hawaii.
Hawaii’s people are equitably thriving through healthy and vibrant relationships, shared aloha, and a deep rooted kuleana for one another and Honua (the Earth).
