Project Info

Project Info

Career break volunteer projects are open to all, whether you volunteer during winter, spring, summer or other times of the year.

Once your application is accepted, we will search for a project that matches your skills and interests. To make your work impactful, pre–planning is necessary so making a decision early on the type of activities you’ll do is important.

Project days & times:

Your volunteering career break projects will be available Monday – Fridays from 9:00am to approximately 4:30pm. If you would like a shorter day we can organize this.

We want you to be totally immersed in the Jamaican culture so on weekends our organization offers day excursions and cultural immersion experiences. We continually look for eye-opening cultural activities for you to do in your free time.

Duration of this project

This project will allow you to volunteer for a minimum of one week and a maximum of three months. If you require a longer duration special arrangements would be needed so contact us.

Combination of Projects

Career break projects overseas allow you to combine multiple volunteer projects. If you are interested in working with other projects you can make this request.

How this program works?

On your arrival at our volunteer home you will be given an orientation. During the orientation you’ll be told what to expect the following day and the time of departure.

Transportation:

On your first day and every day of your project we will transport you in a group or take you alone to that special project you chose.

What to expect on the first day of your project

As part of our in-country support you will be introduced to the local staff who will help you settle in. We’ll arrange for one of our Program Advisors to accompany you to your project on the first day and you won’t be left alone until you’re are settled.

Before our departure, we will help you make arrangements for an affordable lunch or we will show you how to find the closest food store. At end of the day, we’ll pick you up at the agreed time. On your way home, we can go the extra mile to allow you to purchase supplies or get money changed to our local currency.

Memorable Cultural Events:

Your volunteer home is your ‘home away from home’ so during your free time in the evenings we try to offer cultural immersion opportunities and eye-opening events.

Start Dates

Start Dates

Our career break programs overseas are available all year-round allowing you to take part when you can, so on your application, you’ll indicate your start and end dates. Although we are flexible there are times during the year when Jamaica has major holidays and celebrations, so it is advisable to plan your trip that your dates do not coincide with these major events.

Looking to plan your arrival during major events or celebrations?

It is possible to start your project on a major holiday or during the celebration of an event. This needs pre-planning so that you become part of the event or activities. During major holidays and events your help is especially welcome.

Pre- set arrival dates

We ask that you book your flight to arrive on the weekend so that you can start on a Monday. If your arrival date cannot be on a weekend, you need to make special arrangements for a mid –week start date.

Last minute booking

We encourage you to always plan your volunteering trips early as pre-planning allows you to get more out of your trip. If you decide at the last minute to volunteer in Jamaica, it might be possible to make it happen but it will depend on the project. Complete the application form and contact us to find out if we can make the project of your choice happen.
