Positive Legacy

Positive Legacy, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arm of Cloud 9 Adventures, is committed to integrating live music and service by taking actions that positively impact the communities we visit. Positive Legacy’s mission inspires music fans and artists to collectively take action and build a better world. The goal is to develop service activities that people can participate in to bring a deeper sense of purpose to their travel experiences and the music surrounding it.

DAY 5 - JANUARY 19, 2019
9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Washed ashore plastics continue to be an environmental problem for area beaches. Our eco adventure starts at a beach enjoyed by the locals where we'll kick things off with a beach clean up for the community and a brief presentation from our Marine Expert on ocean plastics. We will enjoy a fresh, delicious lunch under shade palapas then we are off for a kayaking adventure among the mangrove systems!


DAY 3 - JANUARY 17, 2019
9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Join Positive Legacy in Belize at the Community Baboon Sanctuary, a protected space spanning 14,800 acres and comprised of 7 villages that voluntarily work to protect the wildlife.

When we arrive will be guided through the protected natural habitat, learning about the local species and the sanctuary's conservation efforts, with the opportunity to see protected black howler monkeys and other wildlife. We will engage in facility improvements: landscaping the Museum compound, renovating bathrooms at the primary school, installing waste receptacles, and painting murals.

After our work, we will engage in cultural exchange with the community members while enjoying music from local musicians and Jam Cruise artists, plus local cuisine for lunch. Then we will witness a Creole demonstration, a culture that runs deep in the history of this area.

Your ticket covers transportation to/from the port, lunch, materials for service projects and supports Positive Legacy's grant to the CBS Women's Conservation Group (CBSWCG), which will be awarded as micro grants to local entrepreneurs that align with the organization's mission.

Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People make it easy to travel responsibly by offsetting the emissions from your Jam Cruise travels. Your carbon offset donation not only helps reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, but also provides tangible support to families in Central America and Haiti. Donations support rural communities by supplying cleaner, more efficient cook-stoves and funding tree nurseries that provide more trees for those communities. Some of these trees will be used for firewood and fruit production, while others will remain for the duration of the trees' life, sequestering carbon and creating healthy soils and watersheds. You can offset your carbon footprint by making a donation when booking your Jam Cruise 17 reservation.
