When you stay with us, you’re staying at a socially responsible resort. We are stewards for the reef, ocean, and natural resources that surround our island. We provide Belizeans with stable jobs and a living wage. We treat each other and our guests with respect. And everyone at St. George’s Caye Resort shares a commitment to giving back to our community.
ST. GEORGE’S SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
We take good care of our employees and, in turn, they share their prosperity with their home villages. In 2014 we launched a formal scholarship program to support high school students from the villages our employees call home (in Belize, free education ends after 8th grade). Thanks to the participation of every single member of our staff, we’ve expanded this program from offering one scholarship a year to five and beyond.
Every year we donate trips to charity auctions across the US to help them raise money for worthy causes—from public assistance such as Crisis Nursery’s to health care organizations and benefit causes. Our mission is to benefit the community of Belize and local area communities around the world through giving back.
