The UK Contingent Management Team (CMT) will 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 into local Scouting for the wider movement to benefit from in the years to come. We hope you will help us embrace this challenge!”
