Camp Respect will be a three day camp in Jamaica. This camp will teach 40-50 young Jamaicans from the ages of 13-17 years of age skills such as independence, leadership, civic responsibility and gender equality. By participating in activities such as mapping, agriculture, star tracking, team building, sports and more, we will promote respect, leadership, healthy living, and collaboration in the young men. By positively influencing these young men through engaging activities and speakers, our goal is to send them home with a better understanding of what it means to be a respectful young man, as well as sending the counselors back with the proper tools to replicate the camp in their own communities.

This project has been designed to expand access to education for girls in Jamaica as part of the Let Girls Learn Program. Learn more at letgirlslearn.peacecorps.gov.

Your contribution increases the impact of Mr. Reust, his fellow Peace Corps Volunteers, and their communities; and makes a brighter future possible for young women in Jamaica.
