A CALLING ALL YOUNG ADULTS: Introducing the Puma Patrol, an IST opportunity not to be missed!

CALLING ALL YOUNG ADULTS: Introducing the Puma Patrol, an IST opportunity not to be missed!

Serving on the Puma Patrol will place young adult ISTs in the driver’s seat of leading the 2019 World Scout Jamboree’s cultural and social experience. As you weigh the decision to staff the jamboree, we invite you to consider joining the Puma Patrol team, where you’ll impact the lives of hundreds of Scouts on a daily basis as a WSJ social director and ambassador.

To help you understand Puma Patrol’s mission, Forrest Gertin and Elyse Wyatt, two of Puma Patrol’s senior young adult leaders, have offered a look into the day in the life of a Puma Patrol IST. If you’re up for the challenge, register today!

 

1. Jamboree Hosts: Front Door to the WSJ

 

Puma Patrol ISTs will form a team with 200 other young adults from the three host nations, Canada, Mexico and the United States, as one of two groups of Rovers dedicated to making the jamboree a success. We embody the host spirit—fulfilling the unique responsibilities of welcoming Scouts from around the world to our home in the Summit.

We’ll help contingents get settled, answer questions, and keep everyone in great spirits. Our goal is to brighten a participant’s experience during every interaction, through random acts of kindness and leadership through customer service.

 

2. Jamboree Social Directors: Young People Leading Young People

 

Puma Patrol ambassadors need a “can-do” attitude, high energy, and excellent communications skills. Participants will find us on a daily basis in each of the Summit’s 16 sub-camps.

We’re looking for the folks who love to emcee campfires, lead team development games, facilitate evening reflections, or break down barriers between cultures. Think about an experience at a summer camp, high adventure base, or NYLT — we’ll embody those “commissioner”, “ranger/foreman/interpreter”, or “guide” roles in helping people access their adventure and connect with the people around them!

3. Jamboree Pathfinders: Facilitating the Mountaintop Experience

 

We will also help jamboree participants navigate daily adventures to the highest point at the Summit, Mt. Jack. As part of this unique trek, Puma Patrol ISTs will ensure participants are prepared for their hike, support public safety responses to lost Scout or inclement weather situations, and help with Mt. Jack information platforms and campfire programs.
