Employability Boost

Each project offered by Jamaica International Projects is aimed at 3 aspects of empowering our participants: impactful projects, 100% support, and professional development. Our projects are designed to positively impact all participants, both our volunteers, students or interns; as well as our local beneficiaries. By joining our projects, you will undergo professional development by gaining an understanding of local issues, actively participating in, and providing solutions to issues that will stand the test of time, as well as getting on the job experience in your field of study or expertise.

Experience with another culture, coupled with volunteer or internship hours are crucial components to any resume, CV or application in this day and age. You will receive all of these and much more when you join a project with us.
