History

A Brief History

Good News Project began with a pioneer group of five musicians from Wausau who wanted to share their talents with people in the West Indies.  In 1983, the first year, they traveled to St. Lucia with their instruments, voices and open minds.  As they traveled around, the St. Lucians would wave and call “Workshop!” as a way of greeting the group (The group gave music workshops to local institutions) .  A better name was needed – and they quickly decided on ‘Good News’.  Talking with St. Lucian leaders, those musicians realized that the country could use much more than music-sharing, and so a planning group returned in 1984.  The first official group of Good News Volunteers returned in 1985 to start a legacy of hands-on volunteering and relationship building that has continued ever since.
