While famous for its pristine beaches, lush tropical vistas, and temperate climate, Hawai‘i is a rural and native region of unparalleled cultural wealth and diversity. Steeped in the rich traditions and history of its Native Hawaiian host culture and positioned at the intersection of East and West, Hawai‘i has given birth to an eclectic local culture that has borrowed and reshaped everything from cuisine to language into something that is entirely its own. Below are some other considerations to help you decide if the Hawai‘i region is a good fit for you.
In order to be eligible to work in our region, corps members must have a bachelor's degree. Non-citizens are eligible, but they must have authorization to work in the U.S. from the United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration and the Department of Labor. The Hawai‘i State Department of Education is not able to sponsor visas or other types of employment authorization at this time. Corps members with prior teaching certificates or licenses may apply for reciprocity from the Hawai‘i Teacher Standards Board (HTSB). More information can be found at the HTSB website.
