To secure your space in this project you will need to make a payment as soon as possible, as space is limited and will go quickly. Each week we only have 5 spaces available (with special arrangements being available for groups), and this discounted package will go quickly, as many volunteers will book for multiple weeks.
Once you apply to book this program you will be required to pay in full. Once all the spaces in this deal are booked the booking option will be disabled, so act fast to secure your space!
We encourage all volunteers to do some fundraising back home before you arrive in Jamaica. This can help you collect donations in cash or kind that you could take along to give to your volunteer site.
Whatever items you can collect you can take along with you as an extra piece of luggage.
