I have a huge, but very exciting task ahead. In August 2015, I will be taking 27 young people from across North Wales to the World Scout Jamboree in Japan. The world is at a very unstable place in its history. Clashes in cultures, struggles for democracy,global poverty and environmental concerns are in the news headlines every day.It is vital that young people are at the heart of the answers to the questions the above challenges pose.World Scout Jamborees bring together over 30,000 young people aged 14 to 18 from almost every country on the planet for 12 days. As well as taking part in all sorts of activities, these teenagers get the chance to meet each other, live alongside one another. They discover what they have in common, learn to embrace their differences, and think about how to make the World a better place.These events are life-changing experiences. But they don’t come cheap!Building a temporary city for these Scouts is an expensive task. The costs of the Jamboree arealso weighted so that participants from richer countries pay more than those from poorer -otherwise it wouldn’t be a global event.Each Scout from the UK attending, and their leaders - who are already giving up 2 years of theirlives preparing for this - has to find £2,995 to pay for their place.They will be undertaking all manner of fundraising events between now and 2015. Up at the crackof dawn manning unending car boot sale stalls, packing hundreds and hundreds of shopping bagsin supermarkets up and down the land. If you are able to make a donation to support me, as a volunteer, to provide this life-changing experience for these young people, please do! If you would like more information about the event or Scouting in general, please do not hesitate to contact me.
