We are Jalawelo. We engage together as talented, compassionate, and thinking Jamaicans and friends of Jamaica to design and implement sustainable solutions for the folks we want to help.
We believe we have an exciting opportunity to seriously PRAY and THINK and ACT in love to impact people's lives in real ways.
- Business as Mission:
Engage remotely as a member of a small team using communication technologies to provide encouragement, guidance, and support to community-based social enterprise initiatives that provide jobs, training, and hope for the most vulnerable.
- Community Development Strategists:
Help to think through innovative models for community-based initiatives that will impact people's lives (e.g., our "I Can Parent" initiative; school-based initiatives, etc.).
- Diaspora Outreach:
Design strategies to build trust and hope that will motivate a disengaged Diaspora so that they will contribute to change in even in some small in Jamaica (e.g., help to organize Jalawelo Outreach Networking Events (JONES)).
- Event Planning:
Help with the planning of 3-4 Jalawelo events each year (e.g., Spring Breakfast, Christmas Party, etc.)
- Community Connectors:
If you are a part of a Jamaican church/organization-based community, represent Jalawelo as an ambassador and help to disseminate information about Jalawelo's activities and programs.
- Young Adult Mentors:
Connect with young adults engaged in the Young Adult Circle program to provide encouragement and support using online communication technologies.
Missions Trips to faithful communities where we are engaged.
Whatever happens to be your passion: If you have a dream for Jamaica and we can prayerfully work together to make it happen, let's do it.
