Under the Hawaii Child Labor Law, a child labor certificate or “work permit” is required for working minors until they reach 18 years of age. Applicants under the age of 18 must obtain a certificate to participate in the Mālama Kauaʻi Ag Internship Program. More information and forms can be found at http://labor.hawaii.gov/wsd/child-labor/.

The goal of the Kaua`i Ag Internship program is to offer 100 weeks of paid Ag Internships to local high school and college students annually, to inspire and mentor potential future farmers. In addition to receiving a stipend, students also receive a recommendation letter and internship evaluation for their future career portfolio.

Farmers: If you’d be interested in hosting a service-learning field trip and mentoring session with our Ag Interns on your farm, submit your information to us by completing this simple form.
