Niall chosen to represent UK Scouts in South Korea
A TEEN from Camelford is set to jet off to South Korea to support more than 50,000 young people after being selected to work at the largest Scout Jamboree in the world.
This time next year, Niall Daniel, 18, will be in South Korea working as part of the International Service Team to support more than 50,000 scouts from across the world.
Niall is amongst some 950 adult volunteers from the UK and 6,000 from across the globe who have been selected to provide support at the event.
The Jamboree brings together young people for a skills, cultural and adventure festival in Saemangeum, South Korea.
Volunteers at the event will take on a variety of roles, giving young people from around the world a once in a lifetime experience. These roles include planning and delivering activities, providing medical, catering and infrastructure services, and passing on their skills to the young people surrounding them.
Niall can’t wait to have this experience and hopes it will push him onto more great things.
He said: “I can’t wait, I am so looking forward to this experience — scouting is pushing me outside my comfort zone and I can’t wait to go there and have new experiences and learn new skills and life enriching experiences.”
Niall has also been congratulated by the UK’s Chief Scout, Bear Grylls.
He said: “Congratulations to Niall and all the other adult volunteers who have been selected to support this adventure! World Scout Jamborees only happen every four years and tens of thousands of Scouts from across the world attend each one. Young people could not take part in these life changing events without the support of adult volunteers like Niall.
“Over the last couple of years adult volunteers have played an important part in holding our communities together. Now is their chance to have an adventure.”
