  • Leader

Sometimes being at a Jamboree can be an overwhelming experience for the young person. Leaders play a critical role in the Jamboree. They not only work with the young people to guide them through the daily programme activities but they also help to manage the patrol by guiding them to meet the needs of each day.

  • International Service Team (IST)

IST members will be required on site one day before and after the Jamboree itself. Applicants must be recommended by their respective National Scout Organisations (NSOs). 

  • Scout Active Support (SAS)

Scout Active Support is a way for retired scouts and leaders who aren’t actively registered to volunteer some time to CariJam. SAS volunteers are willing to share their experiences with each other and with participants at the Jamboree in a special role, which would include manning the Scout Heritage Village and the Scout Artifact Display. SAS volunteers would also get the chance to participate in Jamboree activities.
