New board of director

On October, 22nd, 2016 I was unanimously elected President of the Sea Scout Group Ilha de Vitória.

This is a new, and challenging milestone in my volunteer career. Assuming such a leadership position gives me the very important mission to run, together with the other three member of the board of directors, a local unit of the World Organization of Scout Movement.

The Scout Movement is present nowadays in 224 countries and territories around the world, with over 40 million members in some one million local community Scout Groups, WOSM is one of the largest youth movements in the world.

Some seven million members in WOSM are adult volunteers who support local activities. Through peer-to-peer leadership, supported by adults, each local Scout Group embraces the same set of values illustrated in the Scout Promise and Law. Each of the one million local Scout Groups follows a similar system of non-formal education suited to the unique aspects of their local community.



Upward in the volunteer career

Cover - First UEB-ES meeting 2016

Last weekend I attended the 1st 2016 Espírito Santo Regional Office meeting for the Brazilian Scouts Union, where I had the honor of being nominated webmaster for the Regional Scouts Site.

The same volunteer service that I have been delivering for 5 years to the Sea Scout Group Ilha de Vitória, now is extended to a statewide.

I consider such nomination an important milestone in my volunteer career and, because of that, I wrote this post to celebrate the event.

I would like to express my gratitude to Estêvão Salles, not only for the invitation to take up the webmaster post but also for taking these pictures that I share here.

By signing the Volunteer Service Agreement and taking the Scout Oath, I started a statewide compromise involving

  • Duty to God and country,
  • Duty to other people, and
  • Duty to myself

Now I am waiting for the new website templates to be delivered by UEB (Brazilian Scouts Union) to start the project to build a brand new site for the State Scouts Organization.
