WSJ24 - 2019 - North America

Unit Leaders

Are you bursting with energy and ideas? Are you most at home with young people, helping bring out the best in them?

We are looking for a group of enthusiastic, dedicated adults to support Scouts from Surrey on an adventure of a lifetime to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, USA.

Sound like you? Read on for more details…

What is a Jamboree?

A World Scout Jamboree is a world Scouting event for young people aged between 14 and 18 and is a gathering of Scouts and Guides from all over the world for an exciting programme of global development, peace, cultural understanding, adventure, fun and friendship. Check out this 60-second guide produced by Surrey attendees to the last Jamboree.

Who do we need?

We need several Leaders who should have experience or a clear understanding of the age group concerned, but age or time in Scouting should not be a barrier to your application. Applicants should be enthusiastic and committed to delivering an amazing experience before, during and after the Jamboree and be aware that this requires a significant time commitment.

How do I find out more and apply?

The application letter can be found HERE.

The full information pack is available HERE and application form is available HERE. 

If you are uncertain about applying, or have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to get in touch with James Turner (County International Team) at james.turner34+jambo@gmail.com
