Applications to attend the “Mawson Scholarship in Leadership” in 2014 are now open!
The Mawson Leadership Course is an advanced training program for Venturer Scouts aged 15 to 18 years conducted over five days, where participants will receive instruction and practical training in teamwork, communication, decision making and problem solving, conflict resolution, and event management.
Previous Mawson participants have now progressed into roles on various Branch and National Youth Councils, the AV2015 Organising Committee, and as Assistant Contingent Leader for the next World Scout Jamboree. Venturers that have completed the course have described the program as “exceeding all expectations”, “simply amazing” and “the best experience ever!”
Apply now to secure your position. Two courses will be running in 2014 as follows:
- 7-11 July 2014 Baden Powell Park, Queensland
- 29 September – 3 October 2014 Bundilla Scout Camp, NSW
Each Branch identifies its most talented and passionate youth members with the potential as great ambassadors for Scouting. All applications for both courses close on Thursday 27 March 2014.
The selection of participants will be managed by each Branch with the aim to select young leaders with the potential for dynamic leadership roles within the Branch.
