College Students Selected to Attend World Scout Jamboree

Ivybridge Community College is delighted to announce that four students have been selected to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree on 22 July to 2 August 2019 at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, USA. 

The students attending this amazing experience are Megan Davies in Year 10, Sam Dove and Max Bell in Year 11, and George Dempsey in Year 13.

All of the students need to do a significant amount of fund-raising to get themselves there.  One of the events that they have organised is a Fashion Show at Stowford Primary School on Friday, 8 June at 7.30pm. If you would like to support them by attending, tickets are available at £5.00 each.

The UK Contingent Management Team Vision is to “deliver a unique international adventure shaped by young people, where contingent members will develop personally and have a positive longer term impact on Scouting and beyond.”

We have made a commitment to ensure that we not only deliver a fantastic international adventure for our Contingent but that we will also champion youth engagement ensuring that we provide young people with opportunities to shape the Jamboree experience. Not only this, we want to ensure that we are providing development and training opportunities for every member of the Contingent so that they are able to recognise that they have gained new skills and confidence through being a member of the Contingent. Lastly, we want to ensure that the Jamboree reaches beyond those that travel with us. We want our work on youth engagement and personal development to filter back in to local Scouting for the wider movement to benefit from in the years to come. We hope you will help us embrace this challenge!
