Are you known with organising camps and familiar with the Rovers and Rangers age group? Than this could be the IST-job for you!
As IST-Path leader you are part of a team that organises a Path for Roverway 2018. Preparation and organisation of these Paths is mostly done by Dutch Path leaders. Some of the Paths are short on helping hands and this is where you come in!
You will support the Path leaders preparing and executing the programme that you both made, you will lead the Rovers and Rangers if needed and help out with logistics and camp related issues
Because you will be part of a Path team in the Path phase you will be there when participants experience the Roverway 2018, this makes for a unique IST-job opposing to others.
Participants are the most important aspect of Roverway, but Roverway cannot do without an incredible International Service Team! With our expected 3000 participants, Roverway 2018 needs a lot of members for our International Service Team (IST). IST members are welcome from 22 years and over (born on or before 3 August 1995)
Roverway will offer ISTs a varied programme which will consist of doing services, training, fun activities and spare time. Before Roverway, ISTs will be asked what kind of jobs they prefer to perform during Roverway. In planning the IST jobs, IST preferences will
be taken into account as much as possible. Jobs will be equally divided among ISTs and no IST job will require more than 8 hours a day. When an IST member is not working, they can
spend their time in different ways. First of all we will organise activities for ISTs during the Path phase as well as during main camp. Examples of activities are a daytrip to a Dutch city, sailing on the water or evening activities at the campfire place. Secondly, ISTs will get the opportunity to follow some training courses either in developing a skill or to learn from each other’s cultures. And last, but not least, there will be a IST district with their own foodhouse to make new friends and meet up with each other.
Just as it is for participants, Roverway will be an incredible international experience for ISTs in making new friends, getting to know other cultures and have a great time together!
