Scouts Australia International 


Scouting is a worldwide Movement with 30 million Scouts around the world. International Scouting is aimed at creating an understanding about the cultures of other countries as well as promoting peace and tolerance through our common understanding of the Scouting aims and principles.

The World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) is split up into five Regions. Scouts Australia is a member of the Asia-Pacific Region.

Scouts Australia International is responsible for liaising with other National Scout Organisations and international organisations (such as UNICEF) with which Scouts Australia has established a relationship, and managing Scouts Australia’s relationship with WOSM and the Asia-Pacific Region Bureau Offices. One aspect of this management responsibility is ensuring adequate Australian representation on committees at the World and Regional level.

Scouts Australia International develops relationships with other National Scout Organisations from around the world. This involves communication projects such as the Pen-pal Program and JOTA/JOTI, international exchanges through the Scouts International Student Exchange Program (SISEP), and international events and projects.

International Scouting is also about making Members aware that they are part of a large worldwide Movement and incorporating this into Scouting programs on a regular basis.

Scouts Australia International is responsible for:

  • The management and administration of Australian contingents to overseas events;
  • Promoting International Scouting so that Leaders can incorporate this into Section programs;
  • Coordinating the reception of visiting Scouts from overseas;
  • The management of Scouts Australia's overseas assistance program;
  • Promotion of Scouts Australia's community development activities in developing countries, in conjunction with the National Scout Organisations of those countries.

The role of International Commissioner is undertaken by a volunteer who has responsibility for the development of International Scouting within Australia. The Scouts Australia International Commissioner is supported by Branch International Commissioners.

Currently the International Commissioner is Mr Neville Tomkins.
