RPCVHI - What do we do?

Volunteer Activities with DLNR

RPCVHI Community Activities

RPCVHI supports the Dept. of Land and Natural Resources' efforts to clean and improve native plant species at two marshes on the Windward Side:  Kawainui Marsh and Hamakua Marsh.   We join with local organizations for beach cleanups during Earth Day events and fundraising events. 

RPCVHI members participate in the Martin Luther King National Day of Service by joining with other volunteer organizations to Oahu's North Shore beaches.

Every Earth Day  RPCVs participate with other organizations to clean trash and plastics from Hawaii's beaches and coastlines.

One of our most successful activities has been participating in the Annual Speech Festival at Moanalua High School on Oahu.  Moanalua High School has the largest second language program in Oahu and RPCVs were invited to share their use of a second language in their volunteer work overseas.  Additionally, one of our RPCVs who works in the second language department at UH-Manoa was asked to judge students who gave speeches in their second language.   RPCV participated in the 2022 Annual Speech Festival as judges for students in the French language classes.
