The Season of Service, supported by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), will give every Scout the opportunity to be involved in community service and to share their experiences with others. Starting on 1 June , 2019 and continuing until 21 July, 2019, when the 24th World Scout Jamboree begins at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, U.S.A.
"50,000 Scouts assembling in North America will inspire 50 million Scouts and their communities to do something significant in the 50 days leading up to the jamboree and for the Global Day of Service"
-Martin Walsh, Director of the 2019 World Scout Jamboree.
The Global Day of Service will be held on 27 July, 2019, beginning at sunrise on Christmas Island in the Pacific with the Kirabati Scout Association, and concluding with Scouts in American Samoa. In every time zone, National Scout Organizations will orchestrate service projects in their country, followed by a celebration to recognize their accomplishments.
For 12 days, tens of thousands of young people from around the world will gather at the 10,600-acre (4,300 hectares) Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, U.S.A.
The event will be the first world jamboree held in the United States since 1967 and the first time since the 1983 World Jamboree in Alberta, Canada, that a North American site has hosted. While Scouts Canada has hosted world jamborees in the past—1955 and 1983—this will be the first time that Asociación de Scouts de México will share hosting duties with Canada and the United States.
