Join the team for the European Jamboree

30 April 2019

The European Jamboree is back for 2020 and we’re looking to recruit International Service Team (IST) members to be a part of the Scottish Contingent attending this amazing experience, bringing together Scouts and Guides from all over Europe.

European Jamboree 2020 will take place in Gdansk, Poland from 27 July to 6 August 2020. IST members will be needed from 25 July to 8 August.

Join the team

Volunteering for this event is a great way to develop experience, see a bit of Poland and contribute your enthusiasm and skills to both the team and the event.

The IST is the main support for the full event and we need your help to make this event an amazing experience for young people.

Anyone aged over 18 can apply for the IST role. It's a real opportunity to share and develop your skills. 

The cost for the camp for IST will be approximately £250. However, there will be additional costs of flights, insurance and uniform. We do not see the total being more than £900. 

How to apply 

If you’re interested, the first step is to fill out the application form and send it to us by 17 November 2019 at noon.

If your application is successful, the next stage will be a short and friendly interview to help us find out more about you and why you want to go to Poland.

Please make sure you’re available for a selection interview on Sunday 1 December 2019 at Fordell.
