Positive Legacy was very excited to return to Roatan, Honduras for Jam Cruise 16 working with the SOL Foundation (School of Life) for our 4th time! We brought cruisers and musicians to the community of Sandy Bay for an activity-filled and beautiful day of service and celebration. We enjoyed a day of cultural connection, interactive activities, lunch and music jam with Vince Herman, Keller Williams, Ryan Montbleau, Kat Wright & the lil’ Smokies; all while giving back to the local community!

Positive Legacy supported SOL with a $9,400 grant to create a community green space and playground. When we visited Roatan on January 19th, we worked with community members on the following amazing projects…
We were joined by the children and families that benefit from SOL’s community services, as well as the children & caretakers from Cattleya (kat-LAY-yah), Roatan’s local center for children & young adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. The kids were very excited for the opportunity to team up with Jam Cruisers to make the SOL project extra-”special!”
With this new green space both SOL and their partners BICA (Bay Island Conservation Association) will teach children how to cultivate food on the island. Taking a hands-on approach to health and wellness through educational programs that will benefit the children and the greater community, creating a special place to learn, play and grow.
At SOL, children and young adults are afforded a safe and positive environment for recreational and educational programs, that would otherwise be unavailable due to lack of resources in the area. Over 300 children are regularly involved at SOL, meeting daily to play sports, do artwork, read books and enrich their education. This safe space allows kids to be kids.

When that work was done, we enjoyed a delicious lunch provided by the amazing SOL volunteer team. The day closed out with dancing and hula-hooping with the 40 new hoops we delivered (made by Jam Cruisers on Day 2) as we celebrated our cultural connection. We would like to thank our partners for hosting us, the Jam Cruise fans for joining us and the community members for participating in a memorable day.
