Eurojam 2020 – Leadership Opportunities

Click here to view and download the EuroJam2020 Leader Application Form

We have three exciting opportunities for adult volunteers in Greater Manchester West to assist our Eurojam Unit Leader in taking a group of 36 young people to Eurojam 2020 in Gdansk, Poland. The jamboree will take place from 27th July to 6th August 2020 and will be an international experience you won’t forget in a while!

Before we can select young people we need to make sure we have a complete leadership team.

Opportunities Available:

  • Deputy Unit Leader (1 post)
  • Assistant Unit Leader (2 posts)

The estimated cost for this jamboree is £1,000 – considerably less than the other recent international opportunities.

The Jamboree is a physically, mentally and emotionally demanding experience. Applicants should be aware that the Jamboree experience will last 1½ weeks+ and so must be sure that they have the support of their family to be able to commit to the event. There will also be a number of weekend commitments in preparation for the journey and they should be confident that they have the time available to commit to these also.

It’s been nearly 15 years, since the UK hosted the last European Jamboree in 2005, building on the fantastic programme developed as part of their World Scout Jamboree bid, the Scout and Guides of Poland invite you to join them for 11 days of activities, combining the chance to develop new skills, make new friends from across Europe and experience Poland’s beautiful countryside.

Based on its own island close to the city of Gdansk, the purpose built site is within walking distance of beautiful sandy beaches, pine forests and a short bus ride from the bustling city.
