Scout International Student Exchange Program (SISEP) Print E-mail

This program provides a great opportunity for Venturer age youth to experience living with a Scouting family and attending school and weekly meetings. 


We currently have two Youth Members from Denmark staying with families in the Wollongong area. They have been attending school, and the Venturer families have taken them on outings to see some of the sights of NSW.  Their visit is just about finished and they will be departing in the next few days.

Later this year we have three Youth Members from NSW going overseas, one is going to Denmark, one to Japan and one to England

Keep a look out for applications which will be opened later in the year, for host families and exchanges overseas.

I have taken over the role of NSW Coordinator for this exciting program.  My role includes interviewing host families and applicants for overseas exchange, running reference checks, meet and greets at airport and departure, training sessions for youth going on exchange overseas and providing information for their parents.

I would like to thank Claire Geary for her support and Bob McDonald for his warm welcome.  I am thrilled at being involved in such a great program!
