Liliʻuokalani Trust will hire dozens of new teammates in 2024-2025


Are you passionate about supporting children and youth in Hawaiʻi? Liliʻuokalani Trust (LT) is hiring new teammates this year — and an available position might be for you.

LT benefits children and young adults, ages 0-26. Our services range from early childhood programs and after-school classes to family counseling and youth programs.  

We are a diverse, high-performing group of 170 people who work out of 16 sites on Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, Molokai, Hawaiʻi Island, and Maui.

As a collective, we are passionate about supporting kamali’i (children) as they become successful, joyful, and resilient people. 

The work is rooted in Native Hawaiian values: Aloha (love and kindness), ʻImi Naʻauao (knowledge), Kuleana (responsibility), Poʻokela (excellence), Pono (right timing) and Wiwoʻole (courage). These core values anchor everything that we do.

“Lili’uokalani Trust invests in teammates who share our values and vision of thriving Hawaiian children, E nā kamalei lupalupa,” says Maria Ragland, Director of Talent Acquisition and Compensation for LT. “It is an exciting time to be a part of the Trust. Not only are teammates contributing to the legacy of Queen Liliʻuokalani, but our work is charting the course for Hawaiʻiʻs future. I invite all those interested to explore available positions, and to share our story with others.”
