Mission trip

I found this experience to be very rewarding. However, I feel like a bigger impact could've been made at the school if we had known what supplies the students needed. We could have done more to bring notebooks, pencils, paper etc.. I also felt that more information about proper school etiquette should have been communicated ahead of time. I was very pleased with all the wonderful food served and our accommodations were great. During the farming day if felt that an opportunity was lost to explain the grave economic situation of the farmers. Crops were not explained and many students were not clear why they were doing certain activities. When a teaching moment is presented, it should be taken advantage. I also think that more time at the school would have been great. The day trip to Montego bay was great but the travel time was too long.

Overall really great!

I had a lot of fun. It was hard to get use to the kids at first, but eventually it was really fun to spend time with them. Also the bugs weren't fun but the living situation was a lot of fun. And the staff from JVE were really great. I'm really glad I had this experience.

JVE: A One-of-a-kind Service Endeavour

Spending April break in Jamaica with JVE was an overall energetic and memorable experience. At the Mt Olivet primary school, the groups was able to create strong bonds with the kind school children. This experience also allowed us to engage in service in an international education context. I also enjoyed the time to relax and see the lush side of the country.

Unforgettable! :)

I really enjoyed the time we spent with the kids. it was truly unforgettable to experience the bonds made with each and everyone of them. They made it something that I would love to do again in the future. I wish we spent more time with them; ( the full week with them and two beach days would be really ideal :)). Despite not being able to spend a full week with the kids, it was still something I will never forget.

Jamaican Adventure!

I enjoyed this trip very much! I felt like I got a good experience of the Jamaican culture. There were many culture shocks for me but I like enjoyed trying new foods, new activities ( Karla's dancing) and going to different places. One piece of advice is maybe not so much rest time. I would've liked to do more during long hours of rest time.
