The 2019 GNexx Camp is all set to benefit Jamaica’s youth while continuing a legacy of teaching them to give back.

This year the camp will host over 130 youth from Mandeville, Manchester; Portmore and Linstead St Catherine building on the success of last year’s programme which has seen participants “reaching out to other youth around them thereby influencing the wider community.”

Several outreach activities have been initiated by previous camp attendees including visits to children’s homes and participating in school cleanups and renovations.  In addition, many unattached youth have returned to school or work, fulfilling the mission of the camp of returning them from the streets.

Accepting a sponsorship cheque for the 2019 GNexx camp from CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank, Kavan Allen of Fellowship Tabernacle, said “our focus is to help young people to grow in every way – spiritually, socially – to go back into society and make a difference.  We are really pleased that so many of our participants go back to school after participating in camp and continue to give back in their communities. 

Several unattached youth find work.  We teach the youth in our camp to give back and how to live with each other and to help the elderly and others in their communities.”

Nigel Holness, Managing Director, CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank congratulated the Fellowship Tabernacle for “giving yeoman service to Jamaica and helping to improve the life chances of the country’s young people”.
