Mahalo for your interest in being part of our Shinnyo Lantern Floating Hawaiʻi volunteer ʻohana. Our volunteer positions for 2019 have been filled.
The hands and hearts of hundreds of volunteers make it possible for hundreds of thousands to remember their loved ones at the Shinnyo Lantern Floating Hawaiʻi ceremony.
Volunteers prepare, light, collect and clean each lantern. Lantern preparation begins in March and lantern cleanup concludes in July.
We welcome volunteers who are in the 9th grade or older. If you have not volunteered with us before or did not volunteer for Shinnyo Lantern Floating Hawaiʻi 2019 and would like to be informed when the 2020 schedule becomes available, please email [email protected]. If you volunteered with Shinnyo Lantern Floating Hawaiʻi in 2019, you will automatically receive a 2020 schedule.
