Hurricane Island’s Business Partners support student programs both on Hurricane Island and in Maine schools year-round. Thank you to all of the businesses who have joined so far!

Business Partners Program

At Hurricane Island, our mission is to integrate science education, applied research, and leadership development through year-round, educational programs and a seasonal, environmentally-sustainable island community.

Hurricane Island thrives on the support from our community. From volunteer efforts to support for scholarship programs to event sponsorship, when you join our Business Partners program, your generous support will impact our effort to close the achievement gap in Maine and in our community; providing students and scientists with authentic, hands-on field science and collaborative leadership programs and experiences in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) disciplines.

Allow more students to utilize our experiential classroom and become real scientists at our field research station.
