Community Service Opportunities

Students who are seeking to fulfill community service hours for scholarship or personal purposes are welcome to join our programs as volunteer staff.

Our department has also provided supportive internships for students who wish to gain experience in student programming, outreach coordination, and university careers.  We host an average of 2-3 interns per semester, and internships are provided on a first come, first served basis.

If you are interested in volunteer, please contact nhss@hawaii.edu.

You will be added to a volunteer listserv and will receive an average of 1-2 emails per month that outlines upcoming work.

Volunteer work can range from opportunities to mentor high school students on campus, aloha ‘āina outdoor work, public speaking practice on college panels, participation in skill building leadership sessions, program planning/support for community events.

If you’d like to see an overview of specific types of volunteer work, please see our Mālama Mini Flyer.

Additionally, our volunteers also gain access to leadership development sessions hosted by NHSS.  An average of 2-3 leadership sessions are scheduled per semester.  In the past topics have included: oli & protocol, team building activities, study tips, personal statements & resume writing.

Here are a few samples of past leadership training sessions and volunteer options.
