Mature Volunteers

Gap years are not just for students and young people; you’re never too old to get out there and experience new and exciting things. Retirement can allow for time to be given to exploring, relaxing and sharing skills acquired over the years within an environment chosen by you. The Caribbean has islands of great natural beauty, warm climates, and vibrant community life.

Volunteering through V2 allows for close interaction with projects within the very heart of the communities, whilst also offering all the relaxation and cultural experiences of a Caribbean holiday. Get involved with marine conservation, equine therapy, or teaching, using your invaluable life-long skills or learning completely new ones. From day one you will find that it is an inspiring, interesting and rewarding experience.

Here at V2 we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all package holidays. We understand that older volunteers have the experience and skill sets that are much needed on our projects and we strive to tailor each V2 experience to fit each volunteer.  We match our volunteers and their skill sets to our programmes; what you will do will depend on your strengths.  If you are a teacher, you can lead a classroom by yourself.  If you work in management or are a natural leader, you can head up a community development project and direct younger volunteers.

During your V2 Experience you will have a V2 contact on hand to offer any assistance as required, and to guide you through the array of activities on offer. As well as getting involved with your chosen activities in either Jamaica or Tobago, you may wish to take cooking classes in the evening, dance the night away to local musical talent, or simply sit back with a cocktail looking out over the Caribbean sunset.
