Jamaica Trip Itinerary

The BC Jamaica delegation travels to Kingston where program participants collaborate with New England Province Jesuits and others affiliated with the Society of Jesus who live and work in Jamaica, in creating their trip experience. Throughout the week, delegation participants stay at St. George’s Jesuit College in Kingston and visit, work with, and learn from people from the local community.

Additionally, participants have the opportunity to learn about the larger context within which Jamaica as a country is situated. They meet with various community leaders, including local Jesuits and their affiliates and representatives of the Catholic Church, government, non-governmental organizations, and many others, and listen to presentations and engage in discussions on social, economic, political, and religious issues that have affected and continue to affect the people of Jamaica. Participants also have the opportunity to witness first-hand the joys and struggles of people through staying for a few days with families in the community surrounding St. George’s College, sharing in and learning about their everyday lives.
