Why Volunteer in Jamaica?
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.
The Value of Volunteering Abroad
World Endeavors’ international volunteer programs have lasting benefits for both host communities and individual volunteers. Volunteering abroad is a valuable way to contribute energy and enthusiasm to projects that host communities have identified as important. In addition to serving the needs of communities around the world, volunteers gain a better understanding of other cultures and become more engaged global citizens.
