What is a Traineeship? A traineeship is an education and training programme which incorporates work experience, preparing young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

Lifestyle: To live on Maui can be expensive, unless you plan to stay for a longer period. When you commit to a longer stay you can take advantage of many deals that make living expenses more affordable. Example; Long-term accommodation is much cheaper than short term, and learning to “live like a local”, can be much more economical and more affordable than living like a “tourist”. Our workers will have access to affordable long term accommodations, and cheap transport, as well as receive assistance in getting settled into the local lifestyle, quickly and easily. Being settled on Maui for a period of time is considered a plus because local knowledge is an important factor.
