Jamaica Volunteer Programs

About

We identify and offer programs where travellers can volunteer, intern or study abroad while immersing in the ‘Real’ Jamaican culture at affordable prices.

When you book with us you will be treated as if you are a relative visiting from overseas and provided with a safe home away from home environment.

Many visitors to Jamaica do not get a chance to experience Jamaica beyond the confines of the all-inclusive hotels, villas and resorts.

We will provide you with the perfect combination of impactful work/study programs and thrilling cultural immersion trips that will allow you to touch, feel and see the ‘Real Jamaica.’

Our programs are flexible, available all year round and are suitable for college/university students, high school students, individuals and families or groups seeking to bond and work together.

We create opportunities for volunteers to make a real difference, gain life changing experiences and valuable life skills.

My time with Jamaica Volunteer Programs was outstanding and unforgettable. The whole organization of the program was reliable and uncomplicated. The Volunteer House is a beautiful clean place with a stunning view. I felt comfortable from the first day on! The provided food was fresh, healthy and delicious.
All members of the family are very caring, warm-hearted and always there when I had questions or needed any help. The internship itself was very interesting and there were many different opportunities to work with people in two different settings. I was able to make a lot of experiences that shape me both in my professional career and personally. Furthermore, I could explore the island with private guided tours which were absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this program and I definitely want to come back again!

The experience was an incredibly fun thing to do for the class, and was very educational. The staff were very kind and personable, and the Smokey Vale Manor was absolutely lovely. We were served Jamaican food every day at the manor, and given lessons on Jamaican culture with any questions we had answered by the very nice and personable staff. They accompanied us on our trips, making sure we got where we needed to go, giving us advice and tips, and pointing out nuances of what we saw and did.

Overall, the experience was very interesting and exciting. There were many once in a lifetime opportunities to see things that not every traveler gets to see. We were lead everyday by multiple staff members and were carried from each destination in nice air conditioned buses. We followed closely to the busy schedule which allowed us to get the most out of each day of participation. I enjoyed my experience and would suggest it to anyone who wishes to learn about life in Jamaica.

The program was an great experience, i learned a lot about the culture. My favourite thing about the trip was the food, i got to taste a lot of great food. The jerk chicken we have in America is a little different then what i had here. I also like our bus rides we took. On the bus ride i was able to see different parts of the country. I was also able to see all the kids going to school. I wish the weather was a little better, but it was still better than what we have in Illinois.

How can this program be improved?
Have a different food every night.

Has been a great experience that I would recommend to others. It has been a very educational and fun experience for me and my classmates. I have especially enjoyed seeing all the different social classes of Jamaica and not just seeing the resort aspect of the island. It has been a great experience for me and has made me get out of my comfort zone by trying new foods and dancing in the Jamaican style. I am very thankful for the experience and it is something that I will always remember,

How can this program be improved?
I do not have any suggestions, I felt that it was a well planned out trip.
