Traveling to volunteer abroad and learning a new culture can be challenging, if not a little daunting at times. You want the ideal person to show you the ropes while volunteering in Jamaica, someone local who shares your interests and passions, right? That’s Jamaica Volunteer Expeditions. We provide an insider’s view of Jamaica and we are just like you – inspired by possibility and guided by purpose.
Our care and attention to detail knows no bounds – we pretty much have you covered from top to toe (yes, our advice even covers what type of shoes to pack!).
So let’s dig a little deeper into what we do at Jamaica Volunteer Expeditions.
Consultation commences from the very moment you press “send” on your email, “submit” on your application form, or “call” button on the phone! A decade of international volunteering experience tells us not all individuals, groups, students or tourists are alike. So we tailor advice according to your specific needs and wants. We know the questions you need to ask, and we ask them for you!
We don’t squeeze square pegs into round holes. We take the information you provide in your application form and during our initial consultation, and come up with a volunteer project placement to fit your needs – where you’re needed most.
Our friendly team will greet you at the airport and deliver you to your destination, hassle-free. We can also drop you off and pick you up from your volunteer project placement. And although you won’t want to leave, we’ll take you back to the airport when the time is right.
After a day so exhausting and life so rewarding, we want you to have a sound sleep. We offer a range of accommodations to suit either the budget volunteer traveler or those looking for a little luxury. Sweet dreams in Jamaica.
You and your tastebuds are in for a treat. Our volunteer travel packages include breakfast and dinner so you can sample our famous local cuisine and Jamaican delicacies. Jerk, anyone? Some volunteer projects also cater for lunch. And dietary requirements won’t stop us whipping up something special, just for you. No problem ‘mon.
One of our experienced volunteer advisers will be dedicated to you before your bags are even packed. Their mission: to make sure you board the plane knowing everything there is to know about your arrangements - from living, working, eating, sleeping, dancing, socializing, relaxing, etc.
Once you’ve made it to our sunny shores we’ll greet you, brief you, and “orient” you in your local surrounds. This is where you’ll get the low-down on your volunteer project and placement, including the nitty gritty regarding safety and all the other important stuff.
We don’t just leave you at Orientation. We’re here, in-country, 24 hours a day to guide you every step of the way. We also deploy an experienced local team to be your helping hand on-the-ground, on-the-spot, in your destination.
It’s not all work, work, work. You’ll have free time so use it! We offer a range of adventure and cultural tours, whatever takes your fancy. You’ll see the real Jamaica and beauty of the island – waterfalls, beaches, mountains, rivers, people, places, etc. It’s the “expedition” part of our brand!
