Lattitude Global Volunteering and Scouts Australia

Scouts Australia is delighted to announce that is has reached an agreement with the Melbourne based not-for-profit Lattitude Global Volunteering.

Lattitude and Scouts Australia both offer over 18s the opportunity to work in Scout Centres in the United Kingdom. Lattitude offers a ‘full service’ that includes flights, insurance etc. Scouts Australia only offers a basic facilitation service – do it yourself after initial introductions.

Latitude Global Volunteering has been in operation since 1972.

Lattitude and Scouts Australia will now cross-promote so that Scouts Australia members are aware of all their options when planning an gap year, or working holiday overseas in a Scout Centre. As part of the agreement, Scouts Australia members will get priority placements with Lattitude in Scout Centres in the UK.

Arrangements for Scout Centres outside of the UK remain unchanged by this agreement, and people interested in working in other countries should proceed as per the directions outlined on our website.

Lattitude Global Volunteering and Scouts Australia will also cooperate on development projects in the Pacific, so that we can maximise our effectiveness on the ground, tying together the Scout program and the school programs that Lattitude delivers.
