Community Development

If you’re looking for some hands-on, hands-dirty volunteering, look no further than our community development projects.

We have a number of volunteer projects across Jamaica supporting local, grassroots efforts – ideal for students, professionals, tourists or retirees. They are numerous and they are diverse – you could dig holes to help construct a community center, or paint a classroom for disadvantaged kids, or you could participate in outreach programs such as caring for the abused in women’s shelters or feeding the homeless. Whatever your role, community development volunteering will make a truly positive impact on the lives of many Jamaicans struggling with poverty and access to education.

Community development volunteering is also a great way to have a completely authentic cultural experience. You will live and work alongside the locals – eating jerk and learning to reggae in no time!
