Go Team

The Go Team is at the heart of all of our projects. Members connect with St. John residents on the ground and become familiar and friendly faces to our clients once project work begins. Together, they work in close partnership with other organizations that need a hand executing projects that align with the mission and goals of Love City Strong. The team is comprised of four St. John residents from different areas of the island, and the members vary in age and background, reflecting the diversity of the St. John community.
