We would like to acknowledge and congratulate Carden Academy of Maui for being our first Surfrider Student Club here on Maui! Big mahalos to faculty members Tracey Takase and Jane Mori for getting this program up and running.

The students of Carden Academy are volunteering their time to help spread awareness of our mission to protect the worlds ocean, waves, and beaches for the enjoyment of all. They have been working closely with Maui’s Club Committee Chairwoman, Natalie Gonder.

Our Student Club Network creates a platform to meet the demand by young people for opportunities to influence environmental action through service, leadership development, civic engagement and direct action organizing. This network focuses on the development and implementation of environmental stewardship projects – at schools, campuses and in local communities. These projects range from beach cleanups and campus plastic reduction projects to building awareness on issues impacting our ocean.
