Our Philosophy Of Volunteering

Kawaakibi Foundation started out as a volunteer initiative, and volunteers have formed the backbone of our team since we started working in 2013 - and nobody paid us for our work for most of our team’s existence. We fully understand the power of committed volunteers, especially when there’s vision and energy to guide us and back us up.

If you’re looking to help where you can on general tasks that come up during our campaigns, you can put down your name in our volunteer’s register. This is a list of people who we’ll call upon whenever we’re working on a campaign, have our hands full, and need an extra hand. Find the form here.

If you’re willing to make a longer time commitment, or you have a very specific position in mind that reflects your specific skills or talent, you can browse our open positions below or write to us at contact@kawaakibi.org.

Whichever level of commitment fits you, here are some general points to keep in mind:

  • We’re a growing team, both in size and in resources. Whenever we’re able to add a paid position to our team, we’ll always prioritize our volunteers.
  • We are a distributed team, not based together in an office, so self-motivation, communication skills, and good digital security practices are a must.
