Our mandate is to manage and execute the philanthropic efforts of the Society, and contribute to the developmental needs of Jamaica. Built on the concept of mutuality, JNBS gives back to the Jamaican people and communities across the island, by providing financial and technical support to projects and programmes both at the community and at the national level.
The Y’s Menettes (service-minded ladies) are the female arm of the international Y’s family that includes the Y’s Mens, YMCA, and YWCA organizations. Since 1973 they have met every 1st and 3rd Mondays.

It is from their willingness to partner with the Source that we were able to be at such a great location.
