About the Program

Many communities in Jamaica are plagued by poverty, poor housing, overcrowding, low literacy rates, high levels of unemployment and a lack of appropriate sanitation. Community development agencies and local groups bring local residents together and encourage them to take initiative and improve their physical environment and socioeconomic opportunities. 

As a volunteer you will work with the community to identity their needs, help them voice their concerns and work to improve their livelihoods. You will create asset maps to help identify the key issues affecting the community, promote equality and social inclusion, and organise events like workshops and community fairs on education and literacy skills, life skills, and vocational training to boost residents' chances to be employed.

Webinar

Volunteers are encouraged to think about their time overseas and how they can adapt to the culture where they will be staying.  The webinar is a chance for volunteers to ask any questions and for us to address any concerns before the adventure begins.

Orientation upon Arrival

Volunteers will have a one day orientation session that will cover the following topics:

  • How to adapt to a new culture and understand cultural differences
  • Local knowledge (local amenities, language skills, and embassies & consulates)
  • Personal safety and crime awareness
  • Crisis management, including how to handle medical emergencies, security risks, and natural disasters
  • V2 policies including complaints and code of conduct
  • Specific training for volunteering role

Training and Support

Both V2 and our partner organisation will support you throughout your placement. V2 conducts Health and Safety checks to ensure that volunteers are placed in a suitable and safe working environment. Our partner organisation will provide orientation and training sessions on arrival so that you will feel comfortable carrying out your duties. Each volunteer will be assigned a Mentor/Project Supervisor to guide them through everything they need to know.

Safety 

At V2, we take safety seriously. The V2 team are very well-acquainted with the islands we operate on and the highest priority for our local staff is volunteer safety. Their job is to ensure that risk assessment and health and safety checks are conducted before volunteers are placed. We conduct three main risk assessments:

  • Accommodation
  • Placement organisation
  • Third party providers

Carrying out these assessments helps V2 identify risks and mitigate their impact. These are reviewed after all V2 Experiences and any findings that may impact the success of our operations are addressed.

By the end of this placement you will have achieved:

  • field experience in community and social development
  • enhanced knowledge of the Jamaican political system and civil society
  • international experience of successfully run local projects

Tagesablauf

Volunteer activities for Community Facilitators include:

  • Governance: Work with community groups to effectively plan and carry out activities
  • Research: Create asset maps for communities so the organisation can better utilize the resourses that they have locally and to determine what needs to be improved
  • Community Development: Assist community groups with writing project proposals for community projects and carrying out those projects

 

Freizeitaktivitäten

When you are not busy volunteering, V2 arranges a vacation package, allowing you to do some of the fun touristy things that the Caribbean has to offer. Climb the world famous Dunn River Falls, relax on James Bond beach, sip Bob Marley cocktail and learn the latest reggae moves. Jamaica has some of the best tourist attractions in the region and we can take you there!

Our volunteers typically stay in a guest house or with a host family, depending on group size and volunteer preference. All our accommodation providers are vetted and we work to ensure that volunteers are staying in a safe, clean and comfortable environment. Volunteers will typically have their own room with access to a bathroom, kitchen and washing facilities.

The Caribbean is famous for its cuisine; volunteers will get to try and even learn how to cook these delicious dishes. We cater for all types of dietary requirements and in the unlikely event that our volunteers do not like Caribbean food we can arrange alternative meals. V2 provides you with a fresh, homemade breakfast and dinner everyday with your host family or at your guest house.
