As announced by the Pope Francis at the last World Youth Days 2019 in Panama, the next World Youth Days will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 1st to 6th August 2023!

Our Rovers and Wayfarers are all invited to come and serve in uniform, as Guides and Scouts of Europe. WYD are a real opportunity to make ourselves known and to encourage other young people to join our movement. So we hope that many guides and scouts will answer this call!

More information on the general recruitment of volunteers will come soon. 

In the meantime, the WYD organisational team is currently recruiting team leaders among our rovers and wayfarers!

A team leader will, as Scout of Europe:

  • coordinate groups from 10 to 15 volunteers
  • be fully available during the WYD week and ideally the week before
  • participate in the programme “I am WYD” (2hrs/month)


  • Age between 20 and 35
  • Fluent in English or Spanish or Portuguese
  • Master digital tools
  • Experience in team management
  • Leading through example and with a spirit of service for the Church and people: “I come to serve and not to be served”

If you recognise yourself in this description, then register as soon as possible!


Deadline: 30 April 2022
