Community outreach

Three organizations that The Jamaica Inn Foundation supports are Debate Mate, Teen Challenge and The Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project.

  • Debate Mate

    Debate Mate is an international charity dedicated to improving social mobility using cost-effective, peer-to-peer debate mentoring.

    Several schools in our local community participate in Debate Mate and have found it to be a life-changing experience for the students. Debate Mate molds students who, at the beginning of the program, cannot read or write, and by the end, are debating in competitions.

  • Teen Challenge

    Teen Challenge Jamaica is a one-year residential, faith-based rehabilitation program with a goal of "facilitating life-transformation for people with life-controlling problems, one life at a time.”

    Teens learn valuable trade skills by participating in fundraising projects such as woodworking, jewelry making, farming and more, so they can stay on a path aimed at bettering themselves and our community.

  • The Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project

    Working to monitor and protect the endangered hawksbill sea turtles, The Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project's huge success has resulted in more than 100 nests and 16,000 hatchlings being recorded each year.

    Mr. Mel Tennant supervises the Project and works closely with our team at the hotel to record estimated time of nest hatchlings. Many of our guests at Jamaica Inn have witnessed the turtle hatchlings right here on our beach.

    Future plans include developing a nearby fish sanctuary.
