AmeriCorps members from KUPU’s Hawaii Youth Conservation Corps help protect and restore unique, native ecosystems throughout the Hawaiian islands from the coasts to the forests. Kupu is predicated on the Hawaiian concept of maka hana ka`ike, “in working one learns.” Kupu in Hawaiian means to “sprout or grow.” Like the kupukupu fern (which is one of the first plants to bring life to the land after a devastating lava flow), Kupu’s heart is to bring life back to the people, the land, and the ocean, while restoring a larger community for tomorrow.
