The Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Field Trip Grant Program helps bring students to outdoor sites where they can experience hands-on learning about Hawaiʻi's environment. Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation offers financial assistance to Hawaiʻi public schools which otherwise could not afford to participate in environmental field trips. Most field trip locations provide hands-on learning experiences for students grades K-12 and offer educational tours that can be customized to any grade level.

Hawai’i Institute of Pacific Agriculture

Grade Levels Served: K-12

The Hawai'i Institute of Pacific Agriculture (HIP Agriculture) is training the next generation of farmers! We offer a multi-year, inter-disciplinary approach to sustainability education that supports Hawaii’s students in becoming engaged citizens with a global and environmental awareness.

Through field trips, in-class presentations and after-school programs, HIP Agriculture provides interactive, hands-on, place-based learning opportunities for students to explore the land where we live, the food that we eat, and the impact that our choices and actions have on our community, our environment and ourselves.

Field trips are customizable to teachers needs, and include a visit to one of working farm sites, with hand-on, age appropriate group activities like soil building, plant identification, animals, nutrition, and environmental stewardship. Farm fresh snacks can also be included by request.
