Volunteer for the day:

We welcome school groups, vacationing families and individuals and anyone who wants to come and get their hands dirty and share in the fun at La'akea.

Worldwide, there’s a trend that’s dramatically changing the way we think about our free time. In increasing numbers, people in Maui are trading beach towels and boogie boards for work gloves and hand tools. Volunteer activities include weeding, painting, landscaping, gardening and more. Volunteers of all ages can participate. 

Through volunteering you can contribute in a meaningful way even if it's just for just a few hours.

Volunteer residential co-workers:

Each year La’akea welcomes a limited number of volunteer co-workers. The co-workers join La’akea for a minimum of six months, however, many spend a year with us, and some decide to stay longer and apply for a permanent position.

Generally, the volunteer co-workers have an interest in working with people with developmental disabilities in a holistic atmosphere. During their time at La’akea they live in an extended family setting in a group home and are responsible for assisting our residents in their daily life and work. Depending on interest, La’akea provides many opportunities to learn more about and appreciate people with special needs. There are also opportunities to learn additional skills in the workshops and on the farm. Our volunteer co-workers, with their diverse backgrounds, bring enthusiasm and energy to the La’akea experience.
