Upward again in the volunteer career
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.
