Description

Communities fuel the growth and development of any country. Building strong communities that are more resilient and self-sufficient will prove significant in moving Caribbean islands from a developing status to developed. Volunteers can contribute to this process by helping to address some of the key issues affecting communities such as poor parenting, teenage pregnancy, low self-esteem, unemployment, adult literacy and inadequate infrastructural development among others. 5% of all project fees will go towards a Community Development Fund which will help to address these issues.

Your role as a volunteer is to work with government agencies to support the community development agenda. The day to day tasks includes planning for community and other stakeholder meetings (preparing objectives, budget, agenda, correspondences), mobilizing target group, assisting with visioning and planning sessions, community action plans, project implementation, and project monitoring.
