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.
Victoria Mutual recognizes the importance that sports plays in our Society and the rewards of investing in our children's future through sports development. Our organization is dedicated to advancing its Social Corporate Responsibility through sponsorship of various sporting activities.
VMBS/ St. James U-13 Football Competition
The Annual VMBS/St. James U-13 Football Competition accommodates students who turned 13 years old after sitting the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) at Preparatory or Primary school. The competition is an outreach project of the Society's Montego Bay branch and continues to provide the youngsters with the opportunity to develop their football skills, while enjoying friendly competition from neighboring schools.
Track & Field Competitions
At the 113th staging of the Penn Relays in Pennsylvania, USA, the Society received two special awards for its efforts in supporting young athletes. The Comets Athletic Club International presented the Society with the Comet International Visionary Award in recognition of the Society's unstinting contribution and dedicated service to the development of sports in Jamaica. The second award, the Distinguished Corporate Citizen Award, was presented to VMBS by the University of Pennsylvania and Team Jamaica Bickle Foundation. This award was presented in recognition of the Society's 14-year sponsorship of the Boys' and Girls' Championships and its impact at the Penn Relays.
The Victoria Mutual Group has been an event sponsor of the Camperdown Classics and the Gibson Relay Carnival for over 7 years and was the title sponsor of the 2011 Jamaica Intercollegiate Sports Association Track & Field Championship.
