International Service Team (IST)

6,000 IST members are required to successfully deliver the 23rd World Scout Jamboree. We welcome participation of as many ISTs as possible to the Jamboree.

International Service Team (IST) is open to active Scouts and Leaders who are aged at least 18 at the start of the Jamboree and can speak English and/or French. They are expected to be available from the evening of the 25th of July 2015 until the afternoon of the 9th of August 2015. The IST members are expected to work hard and fulfill a vital role in terms of motivating and supporting participants and providing the services, programme, and facilities. Some roles may require long working hours, or working at night. Their job is to ensure that all the young people attending the Jamboree have an inspiring experience that they will recall with pleasure and satisfaction throughout their lives. As ISTs will work as members of a team, we are looking for people with a positive attitude who are ready to lend a hand with whatever needs to be done, in order to make sure the Jamboree runs smoothly.


All IST and other adult staff will be camping in the Adult Camp Area located in the southwestern part of the Jamboree site. Facilities such as a restaurant, showers and toilets will be located within the Adult Camp Area. We are planning to offer an optional Excursion programme, a one-day tour of Yamaguchi, for ISTs and other adult staff when they are off duty.


Please note that the applications of IST member must be coordinated with his/her respective National Scour Organizations. Jamboree Organisation will not receive registration from individual IST members.
