Service Learning Projects

Thank you for your interest in working with the Hawaiian Humane Society for your school or community-based service learning project. The Society’s education program frequently works with students who seek guidance or mentorship for service learning projects.


What is the difference between service learning projects and volunteering?

Service learning projects are completed independently or in groups, off-site and with the guidance of Hawaiian Humane’s education staff (as needed). Students are able to develop a project that best meets their requirements and can complete the project at their own pace. These projects may include, but are not limited to: fundraising, supply drives, awareness campaigns or research projects. These projects do not include working hands-on with shelter animals.

Volunteering occurs at the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Mōʻiliʻili campus, Kosasa Family Campus at Hoʻopili or at off-site events. Volunteer opportunities vary by age and have differing time commitment requirements. Opportunities for volunteering may include hands-on work with shelter animals. Volunteer positions are posted as they become available.
