Welcome to the official website of Project Discovery. December 22nd, 2008 marked the official beginning, in Barbados, of the community service learning programme known as Project Discovery. This programme engages students and other young people from ages 15 to 20 years old in a variety of projects and programmes. Each participant is required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of local community service.
Project discovery facilitates study-abroad programmes, seminars, innovation, design and construction projects as well as research and documentation project. There is something in Project Discovery to which everyone can contribute positively.
Study abroad programmes, and other overseas travel assignments require participants to complete 10 hours of community service in the visited territory for every week, or part thereof, spent in the overseas territory.
Our programme focuses on capacity building, transitioning from school to work, innovation and development. It affords participants opportunities to express themselves using a variety of fora and media. We also provide opportunities for networking with educational institutions, regional and international policy development agencies, private sector companies as well as individuals that have an interest in sustainable development.
