Scouts International Student Exchange Program (SISEP)
Five Venturer Scouts have left Australia as part of our Exchange Program on an adventure of their lifetime. Four are now living in England and one in Denmark while participating in both scouting and schooling with their host families. Each of the ambassadors received their Australian International Scarf from Doug Menzies as part of their orientation day conducted by Janelle at Pennant Hills prior to leaving Sydney.
Details regarding the SISEP requirements and expressions of interest for future applications are to be found on the National Scout Website. http://www.international.scouts.com.au/main or by contacting Janelle Southwell.
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!
The Scout Association is an international youth organisation with over 25 million Members in more than 180 countries.
International travel and the exchanging of ideas and hope between different people and cultures gives youth and adult Members a broader perspective on Scouting and life.
