Care & Community in Jamaica
For volunteers who want to experience something different
and meaningful, but who prefer to stay close to home, Care

you will work alongside a group of like-minded people your

children. At the placements, volunteers spend their mornings

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.
