Youth education organization launchs sustainability challenge

HONOLULU — Kupu, a conservation and youth education organization in Hawaii, and Kokua Hawaii Foundation announced the launch of the Hawaii Youth Sustainability Challenge, a new mini-grant program aimed to support emerging environmental projects from Hawaii’s public, private and charter schools.

“With this program, we encourage students to turn their vision into a reality and lead their community in becoming more engaged in protecting Hawaii’s pristine ecosystems,” said John Leong, CEO of Kupu.

Students and educators in grades K-12 will be able to apply for funding to kick start their own grassroots initiatives and identify new sustainable solutions for their schools and communities.

Applications for the HYSC mini-grant are available on the Kokua Hawaii Foundation website portal at
