The V2 Jamaica Experience
Volunteer & Vacation in Jamaica
Jamaica bursts with exotic flavours, natural beauty and cultural vibrancy. A top destination for beach lovers, the island delivers on sun, sand and sea. However, beyond the beaches, life for the everyday Jamaican is a different picture. Despite a booming tourism industry, most of the wealth never trickles down where it is most needed, leaving many locals living in abject poverty. Taking a volunteering holiday means your time and money are well spent! Your time and skills support local projects providing much needed services to the local communities.
“Volunteering truly connects you with local people, immerses you into the culture and you get to learn what everyday life is really like, yet you still get to enjoy the natural beauty and charm because after all you are still on holiday!” Maya, 2015
The V2 Jamaica Experience is a perfect combination of volunteering and vacationing in the Caribbean. Our specialized travel experience includes everything from your meals, accommodation to tours and fun activities.
Thanks to V2 I had the possibility to live real Jamaica through the experience of volunteering. The training before my departure had been truly helpful. The accommodation and the job have been very well organized. My experience in Jamaica has been 100% positive, both for my personal and professional growth. I found myself completely comfortable in living with local people and I enjoyed every part of Jamaican life, from the music, to the food. My work experience has been amazing and it prepared me to find a job in the field of development. I fell in love with Jamaica to the extent that I am planning to go back there as soon as possible.Cecilia De Santis
