Kūpa‘a Kaua‘i: A Unified Vision for Our Island’s Recovery

Rise To Work

The County of Kauai is pleased to announce the launch of the Kupa`a Kaua`i Rise to Work program.  This program will create short-term employment opportunities for displaced workers on Kauai.  The program is funded with $2 million dollars of Federal CARES Act funding. 

Rise to Work hires will begin their temporary positions in September and are intended work for up to 12 weeks.  The program is intended to help displaced workers who have a variety of skills.

Program Details:  If you would like to learn more about the Rise to Work program, you can review the program details and Frequently Asked Questions document below.

Interested Employees:  As we work with local employers to determine available jobs, we will post the list of available jobs on this page.  Local employers will also advertise their individual positions.  Our Workforce Coordinator, Pualani Rezentes, can also help you with your job search.  You can contact her at: prezentes@kauai.gov or by phone at 808-241-1968.

Interested Employers:  If your organization or business is interested in hosting a Rise to Work hire and can create a meaningful opportunity for them to contribute to your organization or to the community, we encourage you to complete the form below. 

UPDATE, we have received significant interest from Employers for the Rise to Work Program.  We are currently reviewing the positions submitted by Employers and processing the initial set of Rise to Work hires.  Beginning 9/15/20, we will be implementing a waitlist for the program.  If you are an interested employer and would like to be on the waitlist, you can complete the Employer Interest form below.  We will reach out to you if funding remains to fill your position.
