Description

Projects Abroad offers a Teaching project in Mandeville, Jamaica. This project is an amazing opportunity for volunteers to significantly contribute to the welfare of Jamaica's education system and get an amazing new perspective on this incredible country. You can gain invaluable development work experience without any previous qualifications and you are not required to have undergone TEFL training. Whether you are coming to volunteering during your gap year, career break, or an extended vacation, you will have a role to play in one of the schools that we work with and will be able to make a real difference.

Projects Abroad Jamaica is based in the University town of Mandeville. Although Jamaica's official language is English, many children grow up speaking Jamaican Creole (Patois) at home. Jamaican Standard English (a mix of American and British English) is taught in schools and is key to getting a sought after job in business or within the tourist industry.
