The 25th World Scout Jamboree is in Korea in 2023, and we are now starting the process of finding 36 Young People to be part of our Staffordshire Jamboree Unit.
Please find below documents to pass on to young people in your sections who were born between 22th July 2005 and 29th July 2009. We want to make this the most inclusive Jamboree Unit ever and really need your help to spread the word and encourage young people to apply. The selection process isn’t scary and from previous experience young people will learn skills for life throughout the process even if they aren’t selected, from filling the form in to meeting others from around the County and finding out more about Scouting in Staffordshire as well as around the World if they are invited to our selection weekend.
There is a flyer, a summary of the Jamboree, selection information and an application form. There is also a reference form for leaders to fill in for their young people for us to get a different insight into those applying.
Hopefully all the information makes sense but if you have any queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are running some online road shows for any young people (dates in the Selection Information document) and/or their parents/guardians (and leaders who want to find out more) to join for previous participants to talk about their experiences and for us to answer any queries about the experience or the selection process. We are also happy to come out to Explorer Units/Scout Groups to go through this face to face. Please do get in touch!
I’m so pleased to be starting our adult leader recruitment for the 2023 25th World Scout Jamboree in Korea for our Staffordshire Unit! We are looking for 1 Unit leader, 1 Deputy Unit Leader and 2 Assistant Unit leaders, to make up a fantastic team to lead our young people (who will be selected later in the year). Please see attached role profiles for all these roles, and really encourage you to get in touch if you want to chat about!
Organising, coordinating and being responsible for 36 young people, helping them grow and develop and get the most out of the experience isn’t easy but it is hugely rewarding.
There is a recruitment letter and application form is below. The application process is outlined, but if you have any questions let us know.
There will be other adult roles available for the World Scout Jamboree, including International Service team, and we are happy to discuss the options that will be available.
We now need a brilliant volunteer manager to take Scouting forward in Moorlands District. As District Commissioner you will offer support to Scout Groups, while helping open new ones. You will manage adults, setting objectives and holding regular one to ones. Most importantly you will ensure that Scouting offers an enjoyable and attractive programme or young people helping prepare them for a bright future.
