Regional Circular 30 2016: call for Participants: Young Spokespersons Training


Regional Circular 30 2016 provides you with information about the Young Spokespersons Training 2017, which is scheduled to take place at the Úlfljótsvatn Scout Centre in Iceland from 19 to 23 April 2017.

Through project management, institutional involvement and external representation, Scouting aims to enable young people to acquire the core competencies to be used in supporting their personal development, increasing their engagement within Scouting and, ultimately, leading their local communities. This Young Spokesperson Training will increase the impact of Scouting and help building a youth-friendly image of the Movement.

Under the title “Speak it up!”, this training follows-up on the work of the European Region of WOSM in the field of external representation and communications. The event is a 4-day training aimed at Scouts and young Leaders aged 18-24 who will have the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and attitudes enabling them to take an active role in their Scout Associations, by speaking up for their opinions, effectively delivering the message of Scouting and properly representing the cause of Scouting when dealing with external audiences.

Careful selection of those attending is very important to ensure the relevance and quality of the event for the all participants and the follow up in their National Scout Associations.

Deadline for applications is 20 February 2017.
