Youth Mobility – Scouting and Guiding across borders

Youth Mobility – Scouting and Guiding across borders

Support for leaders as they move countries… Why, Who, How… Let’s explore “crossing the borders” together !! In this modern world, people move from opportunity to opportunity across cities, regions and national borders. The global Scout and Guide community can provide a safety net for Volunteers in Scouting and Guiding coming to a strange new place. This session will explore how “leaders” in each National Scout/Guide organisation can help to facilitate the assimilation of volunteers from brother/sister organisations across Europe and the world. This session is for those who know EraScouting and EraGuiding, are enthusiastic / sceptical about it and for those who have never heard of it, but who are curious.

Target audience: Anyone with an interest in Scout and Guide Mobility, and how it can be facilitated and promoted. Participation from those with some experience from their own National Organisation, would allow participants to recognise differences in culture/organisation. Knowledge of own Organisation, particularly professional staff support would also be helpful.

Facilitator: Ger Hennessy
