About Our Communities
Victoria Mutual continues to maintain its sponsorship of a number of activities that not only generate national appeal and pride, but continue to have a significant impact on youth and community development, the promotion of character building, family life and, by extension, social stability in our nation.
Sports Sponsorship - Football
VMBS/St. James U-13 Football Competition
Victoria Mutual has been given the opportunity to positively influence a wide cross section of Jamaica's youths through The VMBS/ St. James Under-13 Football Competition. Since the development of this programme in 1990, the Society has witnessed the positive impact of this competition on the young boys who participate each year. It is evident that they look forward to the event. At the start of the competition the teams display a sense of pride as they parade in their respective colours.
Many of the boys have moved on to utilize the talents and skills they have developed and have even represented their country. Most, if not all, take away the values of discipline, teamwork, fair play and commitment, which are encouraged throughout the competition. In 2010, 26 schools at the primary and all-age level competed in the competition. We believe in and will continue to promote the importance of participation in sporting activity, and its potential for shaping the behaviour of the next generation.
International Soccer Fest
Victoria Mutual continues to provide financial assistance and human resources to support initiatives from which members of the Jamaican Diaspora can benefit. The Soccer Fest event, which brings together Jamaican Alumnae in Canada each year for friendly soccer matches, has become one of our premier overseas sponsorships. It gives us an opportunity to bond with our clients within the communities and to offer our support to what has become a fun filled family day for Caribbean Nationals.
