International Programs in Australia
Being part of a world-wide brother and sisterhood is really exciting. You don’t have to leave Australia to feel part of it. You can participate in international Scouting right here at home! There are plenty of options, and here are just a few ideas:
- SISEP (Scout International Student Exchange Program) – Why not host a Scout from overseas?
- JOTA & JOTI – Meet and talk to Scouts from all over the world, either over the internet or using radios.
- Pen-Pal Program - write, Skype, and keep in contact with a Scout from another country. Exchange ideas without leaving Australia. We match whole Mobs, Packs, and Troops as well as individuals. Get started with the Application Form.
- Messengers of Peace - this initiative from World Scouting inspires Scouts to take local in action in their communities so that they can create a better world!
- Integrate International Scouting into your weekly or camp program - our favourites in hosting an 'Around the World Night', and an 'International Cooking Night'. Check out our resources for leaders!
Have some more ideas on International activities?
Got a great activity that you ran at your Group/Mob/Pack/Troop/Unit/Crew? Have you already mapped some international activities against your Section Award Scheme? Please email them to us so we can include them here for everyone else to use!
