Volunteering on Maui – Step One

The first step to beginning your volunteering journey is enrolling in an account with This account gives you access to opportunities from organizations and nonprofits all over the island. One of the many benefits of signing up is a printable volunteering resume. Impress potential hiring managers with your long list of skills and community awareness. A time tracking option is available to members of our team as well! 












Volunteering on Maui – Step Two

Next, in your search for amazing volunteering options, take a look at HandsOn Maui’s comprehensive list here. In this list you will find nonprofits such as Haleakala National Park. This organization is always looking for large groups to help with park beautification. These kinds of requests are perfect for your company outing! Build strong community ties and make new friends when volunteering at East Maui Animal Refuge. It’s a guarantee, you will feel like a local in no time by taking care of kitties and critters. Our dedicated retiree team members will appreciate the laid-back opportunities available as well. Learn a bit of Maui history and “talk story” with visitors at the Alexander and Baldwin Sugar Museum as a gift shop sales associate. The possibilities are almost endless and the options only keep growing.  You could explore the oceans, the countryside, the mountains, the city or the shore. Don’t worry, there are plenty of opportunities found in the air-conditioning, too. 

Volunteering on Maui – Step Three

Finally, you are ready for step three (and being the best volunteer on Maui!) It’s simple – sign up for one or one hundred exciting volunteering sessions and have a blast! Make sure you are open to new possibilities and maybe sign up for callings outside of your comfort zone. Giving back to your community creates a positive environment for you and everyone you come into contact with in the future. The organization you help will be grateful and have more success in their endeavors and, who knows, others might be inspired to volunteer after seeing your example!
