V2 Volunteer & Vacation

V2 develops 15-days immersion placements in Jamaica and Tobago. Students or professionals can volunteer in unique projects and gain hands-on experience in Marine Conservation, Veterinary & Animal Care, Community Development, Children & Youth or Teaching projects.

Through our programmes, volunteers gain an understanding of the critical work of their chosen organisation, as well as the culture and communities they serve.

V2's experience in building relations with partner organisations enables us to develop realistic, productive and effective volunteering roles prior to placement. We establish objectives from the beginning and implement a support structure that ensures the best possible volunteering experience for both the volunteer and partner organisation.

Whether you are volunteering as an individual or in a group, our main objective is for you to have the most meaningful experience possible, while feeling safe and supported by our team.

V2

10/10

I loved Tobago. This was my first time to the Caribbean but I wasn't fazed at all, mainly down to the intuitive and exemplary abilities of the host Jade. \
I got to work in a school for a week. The teachers were welcoming, interested and helpful. The children were an absolute joy and I miss them a lot tbh...\
I'm a big swimmer so having a beach within walking distance was a dream!! I swam most mornings, it was accessible and one of the cleanest beaches I have been on, cleanest islands actually. \
The locals were fantastic, one of my highlights was popping into Ruth on the walk home after the swim and getting her roti of the day.\
I look forward to going back!

A wonderful family experience

10/10

I took part in the Teaching Project with my daughter and granddaughter helping out with remedial reading and classroom assistance. It was an enlightening experience for all of us. My granddaughter really enjoyed being in the school . It was lovely to see how well she and the students got on and exchanged their stories of differences and similarities in their respective schools.
We spent 5 days volunteering and 5 days exploring the islands amazing beaches and scenery. It was a perfect combination.
Jade, our V2 host was a delight and made our trip such a great experience.

How can this program be improved?

This was my first experience volunteering and I would be hard pressed to find fault with it.
If anything, it has made me want to sign up for more volunteering abroad in the very near future.

A completely immersive experience

10/10

The V2 experience allowed me to go deeper in to the culture than you ever could on holiday.I have come home feeling like I understand the culture, the history and the people - and with a longing to go back to those beautiful beaches and all night parties!

How can this program be improved?

The whole experience was incredible.

'Once in a lifetime experience!'

10/10

This was my 2nd time visiting Jamaica and I had a great time first visit but felt I didn't get to see the real Jamaica as it was very Hotel/ Resort based. So when I came across V2 it sounded perfect for what I was looking for in terms of seeing a new side of Jamaica and of course getting to work with some lovely people. And to be honest it surpassed my high expectations, it was an amazing experience! From the very beginning it was so well organised (I volunteered before with a lot of big companies around the world and believe me some of the basic things get over looked). So to have a clear itinerary, nice accommodation and then the chance to work with so many cool people in such a beautiful country was a real once in a lifetime experience, that i'd definitely recommend.

Excellent Oversea Experience

9/10

The V2 Volunteers program was a very enriching experience as a whole. The opportunity to be involved in an overseas community based program has really opened up a whole new world to me and aided in my growth as a person. V2 were very accommodating to all of my needs such as taking me to explore exotic locations and finding the most delectable cuisines. They sorted out excellent accommodation and very reliable travel to and from my volunteer community. The staff were all very approachable and supportive through all aspects of my experience and provided a superb working environment.
