Youth Programs

Committed to educating and empowering the next generation of young farmers, The Hawai'i Institute of Pacific Agriculture offers a variety of programs designed to engage Hawai'i’s youth in sustainable agriculture, land stewardship, and healthy lifestyles.

Through field trips, in-class presentations and after-school programs, HIP Ag instructors provide interactive, hands-on, place-based and STEAM learning opportunities for students to explore the land where we live, the food that we eat, and the impact that our choices and actions have on our community, our environment and ourselves.

On the right are descriptions of the youth programs that we are currently offering. If your school or youth group is interested in working with us, please send us a note at


Our field trip program provides students the opportunity to explore Hawaii’s natural environment while learning about where our food comes from.
