We’re so excited that Wales has been allocated 8 patrols to become part of the UK Contingent to the 25 World Scout Jamboree in Korea during 2023.

That means we need to recruit 8 adult volunteers to become the Unit Leadership Team who make sure that our 72 young people will be empowered to be bold and brave to make the most of the life shaping experience the World Scout Jamboree will provide.

We’re supporting the UK Contingent’s vision to be the most inclusive UK Contingent to attend a World Scout Jamboree. There should be no unnecessary barriers to anyone becoming part of our Unit Leadership Team.

  • Never been to a Jamboree before? – that’s OK!
  • Not an Explorer Scout Leader? – absolutely no problem
  • Never been on a plane? – step forward tiger!

The UK Contingent is not shying away from challenging the perceptions of who an adult jamboree volunteer is, so if you’re prepared to Think bigDream wild and Act together why not leap at the opportunity to apply to join our team?

This is an adult role, and considering prior experience, the UK Contingent advise Unit Leaders, Deputies and Assistant should be at least 18 years old by 1 January 2022. 

Considering it?
