Hawaii Youth Conservation Corps (HYCC) – Summer Program


2023 Application Form


INSTRUCTIONS

1.       All applicants MUST READ the program requirements for the position they are applying for.  If you have questions about your eligibility, please email or call us.

 

2.     Click "Next Page" to continue.  You can save your application and return to it later using the "Save my progress" link at the top or bottom of any page.

 

3.      When finished, click "Submit".  You will need to complete your electronic signature on the Final Review page, and then verify it via an emailed link.

 

4.     After you have finished, your references will automatically receive an email with a link to complete their reference form.  We advise you to submit your application early in order to give your references time to submit their forms.

 

5.     Lastly, call or email Kupu staff to confirm that all parts of your application, including both reference forms, have been received before the deadline.


Your application will be considered incomplete until all parts have been received.  If you have any questions, please contact us at (808) 735-1221 ext. 2001 or hyccsummer@kupuhawaii.org.


IMPORTANT:  In order to promote the safety and well-being of staff, participants, and the communities we serve, Kupu has implemented a wide range of health and safety protocols.  As such, HYCC Summer Program participants are required to follow all applicable government rules and mandates.  Furthermore, while not considered to be employees at their designated host sites, participants are required to adhere to host site‐specific requirements and policies, including those related to vaccination status.  We will note that a significant portion of HYCC Summer host sites require visitors (including volunteers) to be fully vaccinated before serving at a host site, without the alternative of testing.  As this requirement is applicable to a significant portion of our host sites, successful completion of the program will require participants to meet the full vaccination requirement by the anticipated start date.


(Initial)


The priority deadline for all HYCC Summer applications & reference forms to be submitted is February 17, 2023.  This application will remain open until all positions are filled.

References & Resume


Important: Your application will be considered incomplete until we have received your resume (Team Leaders only) and BOTH reference forms.  It is your kuleana (responsibility) to check with our program staff that these have been submitted.


Are you applying to multiple Kupu programs?  If you are using the same references for your applications, they will need to fill out separate forms for each one you submit.  Please let them know in advance that they will be receiving multiple emails with a different web link for each program application.


Guidelines for selecting references:  Use professional references only (e.g., a teacher, coach, employer, group you have volunteered with, or anyone that knows you in a professional capacity).  References cannot be immediate family members or close friends.  Misspelling or putting the wrong reference email address may significantly delay your application.  Please verify that you have entered them correctly.

If you or your references have any questions, please contact us at hyccsummer@kupuhawaii.org or 808-735-1221 ext. 2001.
