I am going to be moving to Tortola in January and I would like to do some volunteer work, if possible. Is there a list of charities/groups on the island where I can volunteer?
Good morning Elisha,
Rotary is an international service organisation that provides opportunities for residents to give back to the community. There are three Rotary clubs in Tortola: the Rotary Club of Tortola, the Rotary Club of Road Town and the Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town.Membership is by invitation and sponsorship by a current Rotarian.
Other service organisations include the Lion’s Club of Tortola; Youth Empowerment Project (YEP); British Virgin Islands Red Cross; Girl’s Brigade; Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts; Women’s Empowerment Network; Hands On Volunteers and KATS BVI (Kids and the Sea).
I would recommend going to the BVI Community Board Facebook page and asking which organisations are in need of the most help.
