The Executive of ScoutsTT has put forward its recommendation for Roger Berkeley to start his second three-year term as National Scout Commissioner.
The Association is pleased to have Berkeley continue in the position after a first term that saw quite a few changes, the first of which was the rebranding exercise that saw the shortening of the name to ScoutsTT, the updating of the website (www.scouts.tt) and, perhaps most notably, the updating of all the youth programs (Cub Scout, Scout and Venture Scout).
From his very first day, he has made his vision very clear; for Scouting in Trinidad and Tobago to be a movement not only for young people but of young people. His work towards fulfilling the Youth Involvement requirements of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) has seen the reintroduction of the National Youth Commissioner role and the National Youth Council.
Roger is looking forward to continuing what he started three years ago. He sees the Rover Section, which officially launched with the first all-crew group at UWI in September 2017, as a way to keep young people in the movement and bridge the gap to leadership. While the Rover Program is still being developed, Youth Commissioners are in the process of being appointed for each of the 20 Scout Districts across the country.
His professional HR experience as well as his personal experience as a Group Scout Leader have been great assets in his ability to envision, plan and execute positive changes. We at ScoutsTT are glad to have him on board to lead our mission to develop character amongst our young people.
