Hedonisia Hawaii is an ecotourist community that uses social enterprise principles to work for a better planet and to have fun doing it.
Hedonisia Hawaii is an "eco-feminist" community that empowers women to live in the jungle and be able to work on projects that are supportive of women's rights around the world..
Aside from our eco-tourist programs we offer a Sustainable Community Manager Internship at our Community in Hawaii.
Using our own eco-feminist business projects as case histories we allow interns to get an 'insider's education' of how real life social enterprises and sustainable communities work and operate on a day-to-day basis by actually living in and working with our community team members in the Hawaii rainforest.
Benefits of becoming a Hedonisia Hawaii Sustainable Community Intern:
- Partial Food Provided. We are a community of independent individuals who are responsible for their own cooking. However, you can cook with other community members in our beautiful Jungle Kitchen! Part of every Volunteer's payment is an Agricultural Fee which allows them to harvest for personal use all edible plants growing on the land.
- An intern’s community management duties overlap with Heart, Body and Brain work! Aside from their normal duties each intern gets to choose a focus, for example we see painting a mural as creative which we call 'heart focus work' even though you are using your body as well.
- Interns learn and develop methods of sustainable living, such as recycling and reusing materials, increasing working knowledge on generating income to support the community, expressing respect in community equality, and acknowledging every individual effort and skill to achieve better communication resulting in community-driven projects and programs.
There is a $500 fee for the 3-week intern training which includes lodging and taxes. Then you are reviewed after your training, you can enjoy an intern work week of only 2 days leaving you 5 days free to enjoy our island paradise!
