Description

Jamaica is an ideal location to volunteer in with its beautiful beaches, friendly people and laid back attitude. Jamaica's children, however, are suffering from low education levels and the social effects of this. This crucial project was created with the goal of helping to improve the education of children and young people of Jamaica. International volunteers on this program have the opportunity to explore this amazing Caribbean island while also putting their love for helping children and young people to great use on this truly worthwhile project.

This program works across all levels of schooling, with volunteers providing an essential teaching resource in an education system where resources remain extremely limited. Many schools in Jamaica have extremely low literacy and numeracy rates among their students with teachers simply struggling to teach due to a lack of resources and funding. Support from volunteers is critical to improving education levels among these wonderful children.
