#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. This year, Giving Tuesday is November 28, 2017. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
In Jamaica, where 4-in-10 young men 20-25 years old are unemployed, the Alpha Institute’s youth employment program is made possible by the generosity of others. Our community, including the beneficiaries we serve, offer our most since thanks for support of the holistic program designed by the Religious Sisters of Mercy in Jamaica.
The comprehensive program makes assistance available to students includes nutrition, transportation, clinical and medical challenges as well as lodging. Donations are critical to helping Alpha, our students and their families develop the tools for capacity building and complete the transition from school to work.
We invite you to join us in this effort. Let’s work together to keep Jamaica working! Click on the image below or visit our donate page here.
