Want to go on a Caribbean vacation, help others, & get service hours for your time?
Become a part ofIsland Impact…Our Newest Volun-teenism Program.
Developed by the Sandals Foundation, the non-profit arm of Sandals Resorts International, full-time students can earn community service hours by taking part in various volunteer activities while vacationing exclusively at Beaches Resorts. From participating in the Reading Road Trip to Packing for a Purpose® and from beach clean‐ups to helping local students' sharpen their computer skills, as an Island Impact team member, YOU can help make a positive difference in the local Caribbean communities of Jamaica and Turks & Caicos!
By participating in Island Impact, teens can earn up to 10 service hours* – 5 for Packing for a Purpose® and 5 for an Island Impact initiative – which can be applied to their school's community service requirement. Best of all, they'll get to meet other teens and get to know more about the local community they are visiting.
