The Blog You Need To Understand Our Cause, And How You Can Help!

Posted on September. 15, 2022.

Hello, there! And thank you for visiting our new blog!

Here at Jamaica Professional Youth Workers Association, we are a Non Profit Social Enterprise that believes in providing the people of Jamaica and its region with youth development training and consultancy for companies. In order to help even more, we thought we’d share some of our know-how in this blog so that more people can understand the need behind all our work.

What is Youth Development Work

Youth development work is a practice that utilizes youth-centric engagement methods, to support the advancement of youth and youth needs, in order to enable positive youth outcomes.

The truth is that the extent of our services goes far beyond simply providing help to the island of Jamaica regarding youth development directed to the practice. As invested and passionate individuals, we actually make it our mission to help maintain a high standard of practice within our field of work. And what better way to do so than by helping others see how they can also be involved in this or any other project?

We believe that good and trustworthy information is key to you knowing that others are getting the aid they need.

How did we get started?

JPYWA is a non-government social enterprise in Jamaica that supports the professionalization of youth development work in Jamaica and the Caribbean. Formed in 2006, we have been integrally involved in building the capacity of individuals and organizations, by providing training and technical support to improve youth engagement.

As an organization concentrating on solutions such as youthfulness development, training and company consultancy, here in our blog, you will have access to all sorts of knowledge and updates to understand how charity and non-profit organizations work.

You’ll also find some privileged insights into how and why things are done the way we do as well as a comprehensive perspective on all the benefits that people can get when they choose the right professionals. And believe us when we say… these benefits can extend much past what you might already be seeing!

What has been some our successes

We’re very excited to have you here and couldn’t wait any longer to start sharing our perspective of our cause with you! We’re already working on our next post and while it is still in the making, we invite you to get to know more about Jamaica Professional Youth Workers Association and read through how we work and our philosophy.

And if you want to have a look at all the ways in which we strive to help others, don’t forget to check the training section of our website. 

To date, we have trained over 500 persons working with youth in various capacities and on varying levels. In 2016 we convened the Commonwealth Alliance of Youth Work Associations in South Africa. We continue to be a part of the global collective of youth work associations, academics, and multi-lateral groups in efforts at supporting innovative, effective, and ethically sound youth work practices.

We hope to have you back soon for more posts and until then thank you for your visit!
