Jamaican Journal

This post has little to do with voter turnout, politics, or even Canada. Just a quick update for Commons readers- I have moved to Jamaica as a Cuso volunteer to work with Y.O.U. Jamaica. It is an NGO that works with youth, providing mentoring and career counselling. I am excited about this wonderful opportunity, but unfortunately, my postings for this blog will likely be sparse.

If you’re so inclined, you can follow my journey, or you can even donate funds to Cuso at my fundraising page (learn more about Cuso here). Cuso receives 80 per cent of its funding from CIDA and is a worthwhile, well-established organization that works in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. So far, my experience with them has been great. This is an amazing country but with what appear to be some daunting challenges. Wish me luck!
