International Service Team

We are honored and pleased to provide all International Service Team (IST) members attending the 24th World Scout Jamboree with an experience they will never forget!

The International Service Team 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 accountability, 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.

The International Service Team Experience

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.

When IST are not sleeping or working, we are here to support you and aim to provide you with an all-embracing series of activities that will suit all ages! Applying the Scout method, the IST Experience Team’s operations will promote choice, personal development, small groups, challenge, diverse activities, learning by doing, and intergenerational and cross-cultural dialogue. We expect IST members to work hard and play hard!

In the words of our founder, Lord Baden-Powell, at the very first World Scout Jamboree in 1920: “May we help develop peace and happiness in the World”! It is our team’s aim to do this by ensuring all IST members have an unforgettable, enjoyable Jamboree experience in 2019.
