Hawaiʻi Outdoors Institute is a non-profit environmental education program on the magical island of Hawaiʻi; the Big Island. Our mission is to encourage environmental stewardship in future leaders. Since 2009, we have hosted Waldorf Schools, Expeditionary Learning Schools, Public, Private, and Charter Schools. Experiences with the land and sea teach students about this unique place, as well as their own place in the world. Authentic cultural experiences, environmental stewardship projects, and participating in a small community enlarge each studentsʻs perspective and build valuable leadership skills.
