Care & Community in Jamaica For volunteers who want to experience something different and meaningful, but who prefer to stay close to home, Care & Community in Jamaica is the ideal project. In Jamaica, you will work alongside a group of like-minded people your age, helping to improve quality of life for disadvantaged children. At the placements, volunteers spend their mornings with the children, assisting with their care and contributing to their educational development. In the afternoons, you will get involved with renovation activities, such as painting a mural or putting in a new floor. In addition, you will also do outreach work out in the community. Care & Community in South Africa South Africa, a country twice the size of Texas, has developed rapidly since their first democratic election in 1994. However, there is still a great deal of work that needs to be done in underprivileged communities.
