Cambodia focuses on youth programme development

1st Jan 2011

Strengthening youth programme is the core business of Cambodia Scouts. With the support of Asia-Pacific Region Programme Sub-committee, a workshop on programme development was held exclusively for Cambodian leaders on 17-20 March 2011 at the Friendship Hall of the Council of Ministers in Phnom Penh. Thirty-nine participants came from all corners of the Kingdom for the primary purpose of understanding the renewed approach to programme.

A seasoned group of resource persons lent their expertise on youth programme development, namely APR Programme Vice-Chairman Rajalingam Ramasamy, member Malcolm Tan; Lai Kwok Chin of The Singapore Scout Association and Syd Castillo from the APR office.

Regional Scout Committee Nicholas Tang shared powerful insights on personal leadership in the context of globalization and its greater uncertainties. He concluded by saying, “the non-formal education provided by organizations such as Scouting can ameliorate the impact of these changes through a structured programme under the guidance of an adult.”

Mr. Prakorb Mukura opened the workshop on behalf of the Asia-Pacific Region, and expressed that the event is a practical way of assisting new leaders in understanding the importance and the entire process of programme development.

Present at opening ceremony were Cambodia Scouts Vice-President Kong Ouk as Chief Guest, Vice-President and International Commissioner Tuon Siphann, Chief Commissioner Phan Sokhim and Secretary General Lak Sam Ath.
