The Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and Texaco Jamaica are committed to saving at-risk youth within the community with the annual project called Operation Save a Youth (OSAY).

The OSAY project seeks to engage young people within the parishes of Manchester, Clarendon and St Catherine by providing hope and opportunities for youth at risk. This second annual event has had tremendous success.

OSAY is touching lives across central Jamaica, as well as the wider Jamaican population. The project now grants scholarships to both non-Adventist and Adventist youth. It continues to influence its recipients which, in turn, empower them to mentor and inspire lives through Operation Save A Youth.
