How do you effectively and efficiently tell over 42,000 people what is happening at the jamboree? As part of the Connected Experience area, the Jamboree Communications Team has been committed to helping every youth participant, unit leader, and international service team member “Unlock a New World” before, during, and immediately after the jamboree. Our goal has been to educate, empower, entertain, and inspire you to have the best experience possible.

To the best of our abilities, we provided timely, accurate, and actionable information in French, English, and Spanish about jamboree opportunities and operations. We covered not only upcoming jamboree activities but also lives that were transformed because of the jamboree. Operating out of a few trailers at Basecamp Charlie, we are:

  • Liaison Crew: embedded IST reporters in all program areas to stay informed.
  • Content Crew: followed up on the leads from the liaison crew and wrote, edited, translated, photographed, and took video of the content.
  • Production Crew: responsible for content distribution on the website, email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and mobile app.
  • Jamboree App Crew: managed the full-featured mobile app that contains all the information to get the most out of your jamboree experience.
  • JamboChat Crew: managed the platform the jamboree staff used behind the scenes to communicate and collaborate with one another, share files, chat in real-time, or switch to video/audio conferencing.
  • Livestream Crew: produced and streamed two daily newscasts and produced content for jamboree shows, Connected Experience video content, Summit Stories, and Model UN.
