Local News

HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Movers and Shakas program is accepting a second round of applications from people who want to work remotely in Hawaii.

The program aims to encourage former Hawaii residents and out-of-state individuals to pursue remote employment opportunities in the islands. Deadline to apply is July 12 at noon HST.

Movers and Shakas was launched through a partnership with the state government, business leaders and various local organizations that incorporates a “give and get” approach. In exchange for volunteer work, participants will receive exclusive discounts on month-to-month accommodations, flights, restaurants, attractions and other services they need while living in the state.

Remote workers interested in joining the second cohort may apply here.

What’s the same:

  • Cohort of 50 socially responsible global citizens
  • Free roundtrip ticket to Hawaii (based on availability; restrictions apply)
  • Facilitated accommodations (optional; paid by fellow)
  • Cultural orientation
  • Skill-based volunteering project
  • Community building and networking
  • Authentic local experiences

What’s new for Cohort 2:

  • Local residents will join the cohort
  • Projects will be team-based and focus on sectors where Hawaii is uniquely positioned to lead and are critical to our state’s sustainability (see below for more details)
  • Cohort will include an entire working team from one company to test the concept of “work abroad”
  • Introducing “Olympic Village” co-located accommodations at Wakiki Malia by Outrigger
