The JAFSP brings school supplies, tutors, musical instruments and instruction to the schools of Jamaica fiver times yearly, with the support of the Rotary, Peace Corp, and the Claudia Williams HIV Education Center of Jamaica. Trips also include music-therapy and community health students who do volunteer work in the area care centers, all under the supervision of our accredited supervisors and professors.
While in Jamaica, students explore the country; the rain-forests, beaches, waterfalls, and other national landmarks. Program participants also experience the traditional music of the Jamaica, with a strong emphasis on the Afro-Caribbean drumming, dancing and singing that is such a large part of life in the West Indies.
