KINGSTON, Jamaica — Generation 2000 (G2K) the young professional affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party has expanded its reach into Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

The organisation says it is seeking to strengthen its partnership with Jamaicans in the Diaspora by starting a chapter in Boston.

“Jamaicans can be found in every crevasse and corner of the globe and we would love to be able to reach all of them. However, the decision to expand into Boston was a strategic one. With over 25,000 Jamaicans living in Massachusetts the state was an obvious choice for the next step in G2K's Diaspora engagement mission,” said G2K General Secretary Oludiad Brown in a release this morning Arguing that Massachusetts is the home to over 114 colleges and universities, G2K said that in the new year they will be calling on them “to make a point of engaging the large population of Jamaicans who study abroad.”

“With the high concentration of colleges in Massachusetts, all with robust Caribbean clubs, a Boston chapter will give voice to thousands of young Jamaicans who are eager to contribute,” said G2K President, Stephen Edwards.

The newly formed group is being spearheaded by Robert Wint, a medical executive in Massachusetts who is originally from St Elizabeth in Jamaica.
