Bette Nagele, Richard Kirk, and Sheldon Steen with their host families at a JEMM dinner and reception.
Each year an adult cultural exchange is planned. The venue alternates between Jamaica (November) and Florida (April). We recently sent a group of folks from our presbytery down to Jamaica for several days where they each stayed with a host family, visited with families involved in the housing initiative, served at a local school, and worshipped in local churches with their respective hosts.
Last April we hosted a group of Jamaican school counselors in Florida who wanted training and discussion related to issues they regularly face in Jamaica such as bullying, suicide prevention, and many more topics.
Our next adult exchange trip is listed on the home page. Contact us for more info or you'd like to be a part of our next trip!
