Read on to learn more about our upcoming SuperKids 2016 literacy enhancement project!
On October 28th, Great Shape! Inc. will travel to Negril, Jamaica to complete the organization’s annual SuperKids volunteer literacy enhancement project. The project runs for a period of two weeks, the first October 28th to November 6th and the second November 5th to November 14th. 65 volunteers are selected and required to pay for travel and a project fee only; creating a total price range around $750USD + airfare. Provided by the Sandals Foundation, volunteer housing at the Sandals Resorts, amenities, entertainment, and food are provided for volunteers at no cost.
SuperKids volunteers will provide instructional literacy enrichment programs related to Language Arts/Reading, Computer Skills, Music, Sports, and Art to 1st-6th grade students in four Westmoreland/Hanover Parish primary schools around Negril, Jamaica. Georgene Crowe is one of Great Shape! Inc.’s three female founders. Crowe’s passion for serving Jamaica inspires Great Shape! Inc. volunteers. “We are all called to serve,” Crowe says. “I am blessed Great Shape! Is one of my “callings” and I do give thanks and praise.” As Great Shape! Inc. consistently hopes to create family both in the United States and Jamaica, Crowe serve as an exemplary testament to the dedicated passion each Great Shape! Inc. volunteer exhibits.
Great Shape! Inc.’s 2016 SuperKids project provides volunteers with the opportunity to serve, travel, and inspire. SuperKids serves rural Caribbean areas where the literacy rate rests at a mere 40%. Volunteers contribute to providing the essential resources needed to restore the Jamaican school systems. The SuperKids project allows individuals from all age groups, backgrounds, and geographic areas to experience cultural immersion and life changing fulfillment.
Great Shape! Inc.’s mission is dedicated to caring for the Caribbean through incredible volunteer excursions. While traveling and serving abroad, Great Shape! Inc. is proud to help Jamaica achieve the highest good. Crowe says, “Jamaica is a gift I received in 1986.”
Great Shape! Inc. empowers the children and families of Jamaica and the Caribbean by providing access to education and health care.
