Internships in Hawaii

Why Hawaii?

Hawaii is where it all started for IGS. We have used thirty plus internship hosts on five different islands. We have set up obscure requests including a glass blowing internship. And we have stayed maistream with coral reef research with top scientists. Included in that mix are physical rehabilitaion placements, financial planners, and even a surf school. Hawaii has been great to our clients and to IGS. Favorite excursions have been over to the Big Island and Volcanoes National Park. Our Founder, Dr. David Adams, once led a group of students to an eruption site. Back in the 90’s you were allowed to walk over the freshly-crusted lava as it emptied into the sea. Tourists returned with partially-melted shoes and photos of the lava flowing literally below their feet. Put that down in the “what was the Park Service were they thinking” file? For those who walked the steamy paths, their soles/souls were forever touched.

Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state to have joined the United States, having received statehood on August 21, 1959. Hawaii is the only U.S. state located in Oceania, the only U.S. state located outside North America, and the only one composed entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean.
