Assist with community development projects in the fabled Blue Mountains. See your efforts transform a village!
As the birthplace of Global Volunteers' service programs, Jamaica's mountain villages have welcomed us for nearly three decades. Volunteers have helped in many ways: building footbridges, painting classrooms and community centers, and occasionally by performing dental extractions, well-baby exams, and outreach to home-bound seniors.
We invite you to serve this economically poor, isolated area. You'll find the tropical vistas of the travel brochures, certainly. But more, you'll discover resilient villagers who'll captivate you with their optimistic outlook and surprising resourcefulness. Discover the REAL Jamaica in her people.

1 testimonial about this trip
Reviewer: Sally Bergstrom
"My last two adventures with Global Volunteers in Jamaica have taught me the advantages and joys of being a "servant-learner." No tourist gets to feel and see the real visited area like one of your travelers. I have made wonderful friends both with the fellow Global Volunteer teammates and with the persons from the host community. Visits to your sites provide the beginnings of true understanding of a culture."
