Supporting community initiatives which promote local businesses, economic growth and long-term stability.

Barbuda Ocean Club is working with the local government and citizens to implement programs and systems that support sustainable 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.
