Stronger Network Campaign and Virus Prevention in Scout Troops
Korea Scout Association started to build the fundamental basis of Korean Messengers of Peace network through the MoP project Local Troop Leaders Implementation Workshop.
The project aims to have a stronger MoP network by increasing the number of projects and service hours as well as sharing inspiring stories with their local community. To engage more Scouts and introduce them to the Pro- gramme, the national team translated MoP materials into the local language. The materials will be available for the Scouts across the country, which include the MoP Guidelines on Programme Network, How to become a Messengers of Peace, MoP Guidelines for Applicants 2017 and Messengers of Peace Identity Guide.
In addition, in August 2020, 40 Adult Leaders participated in a MoP Local Coordinators Workshop where they were expected to re-echo their learning to local troops with 20 members per troop. The training resulted in an increase of Scouts who were introduced to the Messengers of Peace Programme.
“I participated at the workshop to gain greater understanding about the MoP program and how to engage this program
in my community. The workshop has exceed- ed my expectation and helped me to gain great understanding of what MoP is and the kind of influence it can bring. Moreover, the workshop taught me how to plan step by step and proceed with the project with the community.” said by Yonghwan Koo, a participant from Daejeon Council.
