From NPR:

Hawaii, which currently has one of the highest unemployment rate of any state, has created a modern-day version of the Civilian Conservation Corps called the ʻĀina Corps. ʻĀina is the word for land in the Hawaiian language.

The idea for the ʻĀina Corps was created by Honolulu-based non-profit Kupu, which administers youth-focused environmental programs.
