Hauʻoli Mau Loa Foundation's 2016 Summer Intern Megan Kaleipumehana Cabral
In 2011, Hauʻoli Mau Loa Foundation started a paid summer internship program and hired its first intern. The idea behind offering a summer internship was that it would give a burgeoning college student an opportunity to gain experience and develop knowledge, skills and awareness of organized philanthropy and the nonprofit sector. The Foundation staff work hard to craft projects for the intern that they hope will be educational while also providing meaningful experiences.
This summer, we are welcoming our sixth intern, Megan Kaleipumehana Cabral. Megan is a Master in Social Work (MSW) candidate at the Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work at UH Mānoa. She received her B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley, where she focused on interdisciplinary studies with a minor in anthropology. Megan loves hip-hop, dancing, traveling, eating, and working with Native Hawaiian and LGBT communities (especially adolescents). Megan has worked with youth in the nonprofit sector and Department of Education in both Hawaiʻi and California and is currently doing practicum work with Hakipuʻu Learning Center in Kāneʻohe. We are excited to have Megan join our team for the summer and hope you will join us in welcoming her!
