Are you a college or university student looking for an alternative spring break? Something different and amazing? Something to experience and share with all your Instagram friends?
`Volunteering in Jamaica on an alternative spring break trip is your opportunity to gain a global perspective and independence that isn’t possible from a classroom or textbook. It will teach you resourcefulness, empathy, confidence and leadership – skills that will stay with you for the rest of your life. It’s also a handy resume builder for future employment opportunities!
Alternative spring breakers love our huge range of volunteer projects, offering you a one-week opportunity to work side-by-side locals, make new friends, and effect some real social change. And because safety isn’t just a slogan – it’s our business – we’ve got you covered every step of the way. We’re here, in-country, 24 hours a day. We also deploy an experienced local team to be your helping hand on-the-ground, on-the-spot, in every destination.
So why do we need your help? Unfortunately a large number of Jamaicans are struggling with poverty and living in squalor. Poor housing, limited food supply, unemployment, and inadequate access to quality health care and education is crippling this beautiful island. So while Jamaica is a fascinating country filled with beauty, adventure and vitality, the suffering is widespread – and rapidly increasing.
This is why Jamaica is now a volunteer and alternative spring break destination of choice. So come and give something back to the local community. All you need is an open mind, commitment and a desire to change your world for the better.
