In world Scouting, the opportunities to lead and volunteer abroad are nearly limitless. By representing Scouts Canada abroad, you venture into the world of diplomacy. Whether it’s by joining short-term staff at Kandersteg International Scout Centre, or by representing Scouts Canada at the World Scout Conference (or any and every possibility in between), you will be challenged to put everything you’ve ever learned about international Scouting into working with others for a common goal. By volunteering internationally through Scouts Canada, you will take your first steps to leading the world.

Open call for World Scout events International Service Team
Delivering a positive and engaging Scouting experience at World Scout events this year is particularly important as we continue to connect the Movement online due to the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic.
To ensure we offer this experience for Scouts around the world, World Scouting is currently recruiting a diverse team of dynamic, enthusiastic and experienced volunteers to join the new World Scout events International Service Team for 2021 and beyond.
This global team of volunteers will be key in helping to plan and deliver virtual World Scout events happening this year, including the Jamboree-on-the-Air and Jamboree-on-the-Internet (15-17 October 2021), as well as the 14th World Scout Youth Forum (18-22 August 2021) and the 42nd World Scout Conference (25-29 August 2021).
National Scout Organizations are encouraged to share this open call through their networks, inviting Adults in Scouting with a variety of skill sets and experiences to apply for the various roles which can be viewed through the role description.
Applications can be submitted through this form no later than 21 March 2021. Positions will be filled on an ongoing basis, so early submission is encouraged.
