The JNBS Foundation is the charitable arm of the Jamaica National Building Society that was instituted in 1990 to manage the philanthropic efforts and projects of the Society. The Jamaica National Resolution Project is a programme of the Foundation that targets teenagers in Jamaica’s rural high schools to use the creative media of photography to critically look at their communities and through their artwork, make an appeal for positive change. The programme evolved from the Youth Zoom that was established in 2004 that aimed to teach high school students how to capture images of positive and negative situation in their communities. The Resolution Project infuses the element of youth advocacy in the art of photography. The programme continues to target rural schools that are encouraged to form photography clubs throughout the island.
