Overall Experience
YES! I hope to study abroad at least one more time to expand my cultural knowledge even more before graduate school. - West Virginia University View Entire Review
This was definitely worthwhile. I learned so many things about another culture and I got to meet some amazing people. View Entire Review
I also thought that I wanted to work on a medical cruise ship that provided medical care to third world countries. However, I didn't know how I would handle other cultures or being away from home. This trip helped me realize that I should be able to do this job. - West Virginia University View Entire Review

About

Amizade volunteers have the opportunity to learn about local history and culture; explore the beauty of Jamaica’s urban, rural, and coastal areas; and serve with the Association of Clubs (AOC), a well-established community organization. Volunteers tutor local students, provide computer instruction, and participate in construction, maintenance and repair initiatives, and much more. Volunteers do not need prior experience in tutoring or construction as all projects are supervised by a very knowledgeable site director.

Amizade volunteers in Petersfield stay with local families in “homestays,” designed to give an opportunity for both further cultural learning and deeper personal relationships.
