SHADE Institute is a non-profit public interest design organization based in Hawaii which brings together interns and professionals in the environmental planning, design, engineering and the arts to provide community service projects which increase sustainability, resilience and quality of life in our rapidly urbanizing cities. SHADE provides training for university-level and professional interns with mentoring from practicing professionals. Service projects include community-based planning, building design and public space improvements for underserved organizations, communities and individuals.
