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

Journée Typique

You will be taken to your placement by a local team member and introduced to the placement staff.

Weekdays
