With limited opportunities, marginalized communities become breeding grounds for crime and violence. Help raise awareness and empower youth at risk. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+
Alleinreisend
Pärchen
Familien
Gruppen
50+

Our Volunteer Abroad Human Rights program provides opportunities for you to learn about social issues by working alongside those directly affected by doing Volunteer Abroad Human Rights work in Jamaica.   

Jamaica has many volatile communities where juveniles and the unemployed live. With no work or educational opportunities, they become breeding grounds for crime, disputes and violence. Empowering these marginalized communities and at risk youths with information and education is the foundation of the universal human rights principles.

You can help to raise awareness of human rights, help people who are suffering from issues with domestic violence, housing disputes, children’s shelters, at risk youths and disadvantaged communities.

When you volunteer in Jamaica, you’ll have the option to be placed with a number of non-government organizations who provides opportunities for anyone interested in human rights.

Volunteer Abroad Human Rights in Jamaica will allow you to build your skills and boost your resume while participating in worthwhile campaigns to advance change.

Program Times

Our programs are usually run Mondays – Fridays from 9am – 4pm. However, we can arrange shorter days for those who require. Some programs might have activities on Saturdays which are normally pre-planned. We will help you to make the necessary arrangements.

Safety

Our number one priority is your safety - our job is not completed until you arrive home safely. When you are in Jamaica you will never be alone, help is always available.

Like most other countries, Jamaica does have crime. However, we avoid areas that have unrest or high crime - our volunteer home and program partners are located in St. Andrew and not in the city of Kingston. 

Home away from home - We provide 24/7 in-country support where our dedicated team members are always there to support you with any emergencies or other needs.

This means that when you book with us you will be treated as if you are a relative visiting from overseas and provided with a safe home away from home. 

Mentorship - While volunteering, interning or studying, you will be placed with a local mentor who will give you tips and support.  

Extra Protection - We offer full medical insurance protection through our partners for any unexpected illness or accident. In addition to this, on your arrival, we'll give you safety tips and strategies to use during your orientation. 

Therefore, at all times you'll be surrounded by caring and trusted people to keep you safe.

Application

You can apply at any time for all of our programs. However, we advise you apply as soon as you can to ensure that you lock up your space. Why wait, apply now and get started on your way to the time of your life.

Once you have paid your deposit and confirmed your place on the programme. We will send you an email confirming your payment. This email will also include a link where you can download our Registration Handbook that will provide you with pre-departure reference and support information.

If you require any further information not covered in the handbook our staff is always on-hand to assist you.

Volunteer Experience Value

If you are wondering if you can use your volunteer experience to boost your professional profile, yes you can. At your request, we can provide you with a letter or certificate of completion detailing your volunteer activities and accomplishments. 

A volunteer experience abroad is a great resume booster and can be of great value when applying for college or a job. We’ll be glad to assist you to make it happen. 

Tagesablauf

In our Empowerment & Human Rights programs there are several different tasks you could be doing on a daily base:

  • Conducting out-of-office fieldwork including outreach programs with abused women and children’s shelters.
  • Communication and outreach: helping those who have been abused and are not aware of their fundamental rights. Helping to raise awareness by visiting marginalized communities, especially with at risk groups is a major part of the work in communication and outreach.
  • Be a part of a Legal/Response Team: Your help and assistance will be needed to support the legal response team. As part of this volunteer abroad law and human rights team, you’ll assist in the monitoring of communities to identify individuals and groups who need assistance. When you have accessed their needs, you can design strategies to resolve their issues.
  • Administration: Support in-house lawyers and advocates of human rights and help to develop educational materials for empowerment. Some popular tasks you’ll be working on are researching and compiling data in a database, write reports, filing documents, undertaking legal research and general administrative support.

Freizeitaktivitäten

Most evenings you’ll go back to your volunteer home to hang out and plan for the next day.

Outside of arranged cultural immersion trips and excursions where you’ll have opportunities to experience some of Jamaica’s most amazing attractions, we continually look for eye-opening cultural activities for you to do in your free time.

Because of this we sometime offer you opportunities to attend local events in the afternoons organized by our cultural ambassador/Project coordinator.

Activities such as Jamaican dancing lessons, patois classes, Jamaican story telling are designed to keep you entertained, but more importantly, to further help you learn the Jamaican culture.

On the last Friday night before your departure we have ‘Jamaica Night’ – where we will display some of Jamaica’s most popular food, play popular Jamaican music and also give volunteers the opportunity showcase what they’ve learned about the Jamaican culture as well as showcase their own culture.

Unterkunft

We have homestays with dorms, single and double rooms with bathroom facilities (view images). Staying in homes owned by local people will allow you to touch, feel and see the real Jamaica. 

Our main homestay, nestled on top of the picturesque hill of Smokeyvale, St. Andrew, is a secret hideaway called Smokey Manor with breathtaking sceneries of the Blue Mountains to the East and a spectacular view of Kingston to the South.

This community is a visual feast of ferns, flora and fauna. Everywhere you turn, there will be towering fruit trees, cool breeze and panoramic mountains.

If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy our Country Walk Tour. Travel through Manning’s Hill, a quaint little village and see Jamaica before it wakes up. The peaceful surroundings and tranquil atmosphere provides the perfect setting for meditation, exercise and a chance to commune with nature.

As you pass through rural villages on your hike, you will have the feeling of stepping back in time. See the unhurried lifestyle and the friendly people who make Jamaica truly unique.

Verpflegung

You’ll be served breakfast and dinner at the volunteer homes daily. You’ll have to buy lunch at or near your project site. 

However, our Program Advisors will help you make arrangements for an affordable lunch or show you how to find the closest food store.

In Jamaican homes you’ll find a variety of foods and drinks which are as varied as the people and scenery, and you’ll be able to sample all of them including the popular jerk, roast breadfruit and ackee & saltfish (the national dish.

Our home-cooked food is a melting pot of all the cultures brought here during slavery and the plantation era, and staying in a Jamaican home is the best place to sample these. At our homestays you’re guaranteed the most delicious, nutritious meals made from organic ingredients.

No matter your dietary preference or restrictions, we’ll prepare mouth-watering dishes that will have you talking about it for a long while.
