⚜️ The organization of Bulgarian Scouts, part of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, is a youth non-governmental organization whose mission is to help children and young people develop their full potential and support their growth into active and responsible citizens. The Scout program is based on the scout method and combines elements that support the development of young people.

About the Training

🌄 The “Leadership Skills” training is aimed at adults over 18 who are interested in the scout idea and would like to create new scout clubs or be active volunteers in existing clubs affiliated with the Organization of Bulgarian Scouts.

🧭 You will focus on practical skills necessary for every scout leader to be able to pass on the same skills to children and young people in an exciting way. You will climb, orient with a compass, cook using scout recipes on fire, make wooden-rope constructions, and much more!
