What people say
Hats off to JRYF on this initiative. Jamaica already has a lot of programs that target youth but none that focuses on rural youth. JRYF takes a different approach, a unique and pragmatic one. The initiative is well planned, and with proper support, it will be impactful.
The first thing that came to mind when I first heard about JRYF was the success, development and empowerment of rural youth through a foundation of care and concern.
When I think about my internship with JRYF, one word comes to mind…transformational. Working with the Foundation, I was able to learn so much in a short period of time and the passion the leaders of the foundation have for their work with youth development is so contagious that I couldn’t help but be captivated. During my internship, I grew as an individual and more importantly I rediscovered my interest in nation-building.
