Get involved

We’re always looking for ways to enhance students’ learning! There are many ways members of the community can become involved with Flagship and have an impact on students’ learning.

Time and expertise: Can you give a talk in Chinese or teach a unique aspect of Chinese culture? Are you interested in mentoring promising students? Visit students here on the UHM campus to share your expertise with them.

Professional Opportunities: Do you know of or offer internship and volunteer opportunities that make use of students’ language skills? These experiences are invaluable to students’ learning.

Donate: Overseas study is critical to reaching high levels of proficiency in Chinese, but is one of the most prohibitive aspects of the Flagship program. Financial donations are awarded directly to undergraduate Flagship students as they embark on intensive language study programs at prestigious universities in the US, China, and Taiwan.

For more information about any of these ways of becoming involved, please contact the Program Coordinator, Orion Young at or 808-956-8844.
