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.

RPCVHI members have partnered with local Rotary organizations as part of the Peace Corps/Rotary Partnership for Peace national program.  In 2022, Hilo Rotary members and RPCVs installed a Peace Pole at the Hilo airport.  On Oahu, RPCVs have helped to clean up a small, Ukrainian Orthodox church, which will become a center for the Ukrainian community on Oahu.

RPCVHI members participate 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.  RPCVs participate as judges for students; in 2022, 3 RPCVs were judges for French language students.
