Education Taskforce

The Jamaica Diaspora Education Task Force (JDETF), came out of the 5th Biennial Diaspora Conference held in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 2013, under the leadership of Leo Gilling the past Diaspora Advisory Board Member for the West/Mid-West USA. The JDETF is determined that partnership and collaboration with stakeholders in the Diaspora and in Jamaica, be included in the plans by the Government of Jamaica in realizing the goals of VISION 2030.

JDETF Task Force members are drawn from the major Diaspora regions, including the USA, the UK, Canada and other parts of the world. They have benefitted from the support, participation, and leadership of organizations in the Diaspora such as the Union of Jamaican Alumni Associations (UJAA), Jamaica Impact, Inc. (JAMPACT), Jamaica Awareness Association of California (JAAC), ISSA Trust Foundation and Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College Past Students Association (SSTCPSA) and in Jamaica, organizations such as the Jamaica Teachers; Association, the Ministry of Education Youth and Information, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, and USAID.
