Global Jamaica Diaspora Youth Council 

Our mission is to engage and connect young Jamaicans around the world and empower them to invest in the sustainable development of Jamaica.

The Global Jamaica Diaspora Youth Council (GJDYC) is a youth-led initiative with the aim of increasing the affinity and connection of young people in the Jamaican Diaspora. It is grounded in the recognition that greater linkages should be forged and mechanisms established to connect Diaspora youth with Jamaica; specifically, the engagement of the second, third and fourth generations.

Tanesha is the former and first Chairperson of the GJDYC, which has membership in 18 countries with dominant diaspora regions in Canada, United Kingdom and United States of America.
