Barbuda Ocean Club will implement programs and systems that support local economic growth.
We are implementing a training program to provide specific skill training for every type of job Barbuda Ocean Club will offer. Priority will be given to hiring Barbudan labor, so families can move home and start to rebuild their lives, their homes and their island with the help of the jobs and wages we will create.
We are also exploring how Barbuda Ocean Club can assist and support local business owners and entrepreneurs setting up businesses on Barbuda. Eventually, this may include joint-venture opportunities, mentoring and other services. We have successfully implemented community training programs and entrepreneurship opportunities in our other developments and will leverage our experience to create a first class program on Barbuda.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, many Barbudans were forced to leave their homes to find employment elsewhere and care for their families. With the new opportunities arising for employment and personal growth at Barbuda Ocean Club, we encourage them to consider returning home. We are committed to helping all of Barbuda’s communities flourish like never before, and we hope you will consider joining us in this endeavor.
