The aim of the Community and Business Development project in Jamaica is to facilitate learning exchanges between international volunteers and start-up enterprises in Jamaica to help scale up their efforts and improve operational efficiencies.

As a volunteer on this project, you will be working alongside small local businesses, charities and NGOs to provide guidance and assistance with the basics of getting an organization off the ground. You will be able to assist with business planning, bookkeeping, website design, social media, financial planning and IT skills. Creativity and an entrepreneurial mindset are a must as you will be working with limited resources and you will need to be proactive in learning about the market or community in which the enterprise operates. This will enable you to identify how you can best support the enterprise to succeed using your existing skills and experience.
