About

For many people, the first thing that comes to mind when they think of Jamaica is warm beaches, lush vegetation, and tropical vacations. It’s no wonder this island nation has become a tourism hotspot, with its warm hospitality and English-speaking population. Tourism has helped to bolster Jamaica’s economy, but the country still faces significant economic, social, and environmental challenges. Volunteers in Jamaica gain a deeper understanding of the “real” Jamaica while making a meaningful contribution to the country’s future. 

Volunteers in Jamaica will live and work in Kingston, the capital and largest city of Jamaica, which is located on the southeastern coast of the island.
