Kokua Earth Action Program
Each year, we invite Hawai'i schools, grades K-12, to start a Kokua Earth Action Project. All completed projects will be honored and showcased on our website.
What is the Kokua Earth Action Program?Kōkua Earth Action Program (KEAP) is an environmental service-learning initiative encouraging students to work toward creating lasting, positive change in their schools and communities.
KEAP Projects allow classes to pursue their own stewardship endeavors and KEAP Mini-Grants fund these projects and help teachers from Hawaii schools advance their environmental education goals.
Previous KEAP projects include lunch-waste composting programs, on-campus water catchment systems, school gardens and beach adoptions. View past KEAP projects here.
How to Participate in KEAP: Start by choosing an Earth Action Project and create a plan for how you’ll carry it out.
Mini-grants Available for KEAP Supplies: A small number of mini-grants are available to school groups submitting KEAP proposals. These mini-grants shall not exceed $200 per classroom teacher and can be used to purchase supplies to carry out Kokua Earth Action Program initiatives.

Note: Not all applications will be funded, nor can we guarantee that funded projects will receive the full amount requested.
