Welcome & Aloha


We are a nonprofit organization established to help protect natural resources, ecosystems, and historical and cultural sites in the communities in central Florida and beyond.

Originally established in Maui County, Hawaii as TEACH Maui, Inc. in 2008 to help protect natural resources and cultural sites, the organization sought to fulfill its mission with passion and respect for the culture and traditions of the Hawaiian people. We wanted to help prepare our children to face the many challenges and opportunities that life will present by helping them develop appreciation and a sense of caring (malama) for the environment, and the importance of natural resources, cultural and historical sites. To that end, our board members, advisors and volunteers were inspired to take on the roles of kumu (teachers) and alaka’i (leaders) in our schools and communities in regards to the education of our keiki (kids).

Please take a few moments to read about our initiatives.
