The Faith and Beliefs Zone will contribute to achieving the following educational objectives:
As a co-lead of the Faith & Beliefs Unit for the World Scout Jamboree, the volunteer will play a crucial role in both the planning and execution stages of the project.
During the planning phase, the co-lead will be responsible for creating a space where participants can reflect on their life values and goals in a safe and comforting environment. For believers, there should also be conditions to deepen their faith and participate in religious practices. For non-believers and seekers, a visit to the Faith and Beliefs Zone should be an opportunity to learn about different religions and ways of thinking. The two co-leads would work closely with other team members to ensure the activities are suitable for participants’ age and align with the overall objectives of the Jamboree. If needed, they would also liaise with suppliers to procure necessary equipment and materials and cooperate with allies (social actors, public institutions, and religious communities) to provide participants with learning opportunities. They would also coordinate with safety personnel to establish emergency response procedures.
The Co-leads would also have a role in training volunteers to assist in delivering the Faith and Beliefs Zone programme, ensuring they understand their roles, the safety procedures, and the specifics of the activities they’ll be leading.
During the execution phase, the Co-leads will oversee the operation of the Faith and Beliefs Zone. They will manage the programme staff, ensure safety regulations are adhered to, solve any issues that arise, and ensure that the participants are having an enjoyable and educational experience.
In addition to these specific tasks, the Co-leads would also be expected to embody the values of the Scouting movement, demonstrating leadership, teamwork, and a commitment to creating a positive and inclusive environment for all participants.
