The 24th World Scout Jamboree is building an International Service Team (IST) of up to 9,000 Scouters to deliver the jamboree program.
Scouts who are at least 18 years of age at the start of the jamboree are welcome to join the IST. IST members should be ready to perform any tasks necessary for the jamboree. In addition, IST members must register and attend the jamboree as part of a National Scout Organization contingent.
Members of the International Service Team should plan to arrive prior to the official jamboree start date, 22 July 2019, and may depart after the official jamboree end date, 2 August 2019. IST members are expected to work hard and fulfill a vital role in motivating and supporting participants and providing services, program and facilities. Some roles may require long working hours or working at night. IST members will help ensure that all young people attending the Jamboree leave with a wider view of the world, a deeper understanding of North America and a renewed commitment to Scouting.
IST members will work as part of a team and we are looking for people with a positive attitude who are ready to lend a hand with whatever needs to be done. To build the best possible team, IST members will have the opportunity to express their top three volunteer job preferences when the registration process opens. A catalogue of IST Jobs with a description will be provided. Please note: applications of IST members must be approved by his/her National Scout Organization before the jamboree planning team can make a job assignment.
The fee for IST members was approved by the World Scout Committee and includes accommodations in wall tents with cots in a campsite with permanent shower houses and latrines. In addition, the fee includes all staff meals in the staff dining hall and transportation to/from the Summit Bechtel Reserve and jamboree entry/exit point.
International Service Team Experience Vision
To ensure that each and every staff member of the 24th World Scout Jamboree enjoys a welcoming, well planned, and safe environment that allows them to provide Scouts and Scouters from around the world the experience of a lifetime. We will do this by developing and providing each staff member access to sufficient training, opportunities for fellowship, clear roles and accountabilities, flexible work schedules where possible, and the support necessary to make meaningful contributions to the event while experiencing being a valued member of the World Jamboree IST.
