DETAILS
DAWSON proudly supports PVS & Hōkūleʻa in their dedication to Mālama Honua as it aligns with our commitment to preserve the culture, land, ocean, and way of life of Native Hawaiians. On DAWSON’s National Day of Service, employees from our Honolulu office spent a day volunteering at Polynesian Voyaging Society’s (PVS) Marine Education Training Center (METC) alongside PVS staff and volunteers. The project: helping PVS with maintenance work at METC and preparing the sailing canoes Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia for their next voyages. In addition to providing in-kind services, DAWSON also made a cash contribution to support the mission and work of PVS.  Founded in 1973, the Polynesian Voyaging Society is a non-profit research and educational corporation. With a legacy of Pacific Ocean exploration, the Polynesian Voyaging Society seeks to perpetuate the art and science of traditional Polynesian voyaging and the spirit of exploration through experiential educational programs that inspire students and their communities to respect and care for themselves, each other, and their natural and cultural environments.
