Leader Applications Now Closed
(close 10pm, 16th October 21)

We are once again running a major International expedition as an alternative to the World Scout Jamboree in 2023.

This follows on from the very successful Project 19 Expedition to the USA for the last World Scout Jamboree cycle.

Project 23

The Hampshire Youth Council voted for a three week expedition into Europe, and so we are now devising a fun filled three week coach trip, staying at multiple campsites undertaking loads of activities and sightseeing.

The expedition will be available to all of the young people that have applied for the World Scout Jamboree, and are not given a place on the World Scout Jamboree. Currently, that's around 240 young people, and we are expecting around 120-150 of these to accept a place on Project 23.

This means that we need around 30-40 leaders to help lead and form teams of 20-28 young people, to lead through 6 training weekends over the next 2 years, and to lead the team during the three week expedition in July / August 2023.

Applications are open to all Hampshire Adult Members of the Scout Association, however, you must be at least 18 as of 1st January 2022 (so born before 1st Jan 2004)

Hampshire Project 23 Financial Inclusion Grant Fund

To help assist applications from those that normally would not be able to afford to attend, the Hampshire Scouts Board of Trustee's have set up a Project 23 Grant Fund.

The Project 23 Grant fund is managed by the Hampshire Scouts Grant Committee, completely separate from the Project 23 Management Team. Applying for a grant has no impact on your application for a place on Project 23.

Grants are available for up to 50% of the cost for participants and leaders.

Applications to the Grant fund need to be made at the same time (using the Project 23 Grant Fund application form) as applying for Project 23, and we have tried to make this process as simple and easy as possible. Please also remember to apply for Project 23 further down the page.

You can apply to the Project 23 Grant fund using an on-line form (Ignore that it says WSJ, its a sister process)

Most Groups and Districts also make grants to those attending International Expeditions. Please ask your leaders who you should contact to find out further information on the policies for your Group / District.
