Intern Manager in Hawaii

Intern Manager Volcano Transition Page

Our community had a focus on ecotourism and ecofeminism. We attracted wonderful people from around the world.
After the destruction of Hedonisia Hawaii in the 2018 Kilauea volcano eruptionCommunity Director, Mojo went to Portland where he continued to manage the Hedonisia Activist & EcoFeminist Project Portfolio. 

Mojo is now back in Hawaii. We hope you can join us in our effort to start rebuilding.

Residential Intern Manager in Hawaii

We welcome enthusiastic, motivated applicants who would like to be part of this unique post-volcano project where they can:

  1. Live in rain forest lodgings for 2 months up to 1 year.
  2. Learn to manage a community based on eco-tourism and social enterprise.
  3. Enjoy a '3-day work week' which 'pays' for your lodgings in paradise.

Our Intern Manager Program is an immersive educational work opportunity. You play a role in our rebuilding effort and by working on the Hedonisia EcoFeminist web projects of your choosing.

As an Intern Manager, you live in a rustic environment where you learn to manage land and virtual projects. We have divided our volunteer projects in to Heart, Brain and Body work so that you can see the kinds of work we have that you can choose based on your interests and skills.

With 4 days off per week, this Internship is perfect for artists, writers, computer workers, telecommuters or musicians who will have ample time and space to do their own work on the property whilst helping to manage an eco-tourist community.

Until we can return to our original property, we offer two options for those who wish to volunteer in exchange for a discounted stay in Hawaii.

  1. Hedonisia Guava Land. Camping-style lodgings in a beautiful guava forest where we are building a sustainable and eco-friendly tiny home. This property is close to Kehena Beach and Kalapana lava zone.
  2. Kamaili Forest Farm. Two long-time friends started a farming community nearby. They are offering guest stays and residential internships on their land under the guidelines of the Hedonisia Intern Program.


We have designed an Intern Manager Program that is fun, educational, and inspirational. Under this program applicants who are approved as Intern Community Managers will stay from 1 - 3 months.

If you are accepted as an Intern Applicant, there is a one-time fee which includes training and lodgings at Hedonisia Hawaii for 3 weeks.

For those who are on a tight budget please note that this is a working educational internship not a job! You will not earn any salary. However, with two shifts per week to 'pay' your lodgings in Hawaii, you have 5 days off to find a part-time job. Or you can use your days off to work on your entrepreneur project or simply enjoy Hawaii.

TOTAL Cost for 3 Weeks Intern Candidate Volunteer & Shadow Training including Lodging.

All prices INCLUDE Hawaii GE Tax & LODGINGS for 3 weeks!

Pre-Volcano Historical & Sentimental Video

Here is a beautiful video which we created about our pre-volcano community in 2015. All the video shots of the community show a structure and system that was lost to the lava.

If you arrive as an intern today, your experience will not be as communal as before as nearly every part of the Hedonisia property featured, was destroyed by lava.

However, if you do resonate with any of the projects in our portfolio, you would be able to work on them as part of your internship.

Pre-Volcano Intern Manager Testimonial: Hedonisia has given me so much growth!  I am eternally grateful for the family I have made & the experiences we've shared. I came here a co-dependent burnt-out young woman. I am leaving a spiritually sound stress-free Fairy:-) This has been my first time traveling without my family.  I cannot wait to keep learning from the work I do and the people I've met. I will always consider Hedo my home and I hope to come back.  Thank you for everything this community has given me. I will miss my Intern Team so incredibly much. I'll stay in touch. Love and Light always <3 Emily 2015
