international coastal cleanup

The Tourism Action Club is a major supporter of the Jamaica Environment Trust’s “Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica” campaign. In light of this, we are encouraging our TAC members to volunteer in their islandwide beach cleanup scheduled for Saturday 2019 September 21. Your help is needed!!! Buses will be provided to take volunteers to and from the site. Volunteers are required to meet at the Tourism Centre where they will be provided with their shirts and breakfast prior to departure at 6:30 a.m. to the respective site. After the clean-up exercise, the volunteers will then be taken back to the Tourism Center Building where they will be provided with lunch. Should you have any questions or concerns kindly contact Ornella Royes at (876) 908-5208 or Chaniek Lewis at (876) 908-5207.

Meet our Members

The Tourism Action Club (TAC) consists of bodies of students in secondary and tertiary institutions who meet to participate in activities that are designed to encourage a greater awareness of tourism-related issues. The Club grew out of the annual Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) summer programme for schools and is managed by the agency. The first TAC was formed at the Excelsior High School in 1995.

 

Who Can Be A Member? 

Membership is open to any student registered at a secondary or tertiary institution who is interested in learning more about tourism.
