Our support for Guides and Scouts to attend World Jamboree

Four local youngsters have an exciting opportunity to take part in the World Scout Jamboree this August in South Korea thanks to funding from our Millennium Scholarship Trust Fund (which will top up funds they have already secured).

The 25th World Scout Jamboree will place in SaeManGeum, Jeollabuk-do, in the Republic of Korea and “will enable young people to realise their dreams, make friendships with people from different cultures, and take part in a safe, inclusive and sustainable programme.” (More information here.) The youngsters also hope to help support the local community in Korea in some way while there.

Each youngster managed to get one of the nine available places in the South East for this opportunity – but the cost for each is arouond £4,000. The Trustees of the Millennium Scholarship Trust Fund (a charity* set up by our club) approved £500 for each of the four youngsters (all from the Canterbury City Council district) following their application and an informal interview.

The four youngsters, Alice, Hugo, Jack and Arthur are now on their Korean adventure – we wish them an enjoyable and rewarding experience and look forward to hearing from them at a future Rotary meeting.
