Volunteer Opportunities for Maui Visitors

Are you visiting Maui and hoping to volunteer while on island? We love to welcome Maui Visitors into our Sewing Hui during their trips. Find out more information about our volunteering opportunities below:

What?

An opportunity to volunteer  and directly give back to the Maui community during your visit. The Sewing Hui works on various initiatives that address a current need in the community. Visitors are welcome to join a volunteering session in creating for the Maui community. Having sewing skills is a plus, but we also have plenty of non-sewing tasks available during volunteering sessions. Part of the volunteer experience will include a lunch provided by us and the opportunity to talk story and connect with the local residents who regularly volunteer with The Sewing Hui. 

When?

Thursdays from 9am-1pm OR 12pm-4pm. There will be 3 hours of creating for the community and 1 hour will be for lunch. 

Who?

Anyone 15 years old and up is welcome to join. No previous sewing experience is required to participate. 

How?

Send an email to thesewinghui@gmail.com to reserve a space in the volunteering session. Please contact us at least 24 hours in advance as we will need to order lunch. If you have any dietary restrictions please let us know in the email. Space is limited in the studio so make sure to reserve ahead of time. 

Where?

We will work at Jennifer Oberg Atelier in upcountry Maui. The address is 3660 Baldwin Avenue, Makawao, HI 96768. It is on the ground level floor. Parking can be found on Baldwin Avenue and additional parking can be found in the parking lot next to the Makawao Public Library and behind Stopwatch Sports Bar & Grill. You can take bus 40 to the Makawao Public Library to get to the studio from Kahului. Depending on where you are coming from there are other buses arriving in Kahului where you can transfer to the 40. 

COVID-19 Protocols

We kindly ask visitors wishing to volunteer with our organization that they are fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status. In addition, volunteers are required to wear masks while working in the studio. For lunch, we will be in an outdoor open-air space and masks can be removed.
