Meet Jack

We’ve got a new Assistant County Commissioner (Beaver Scouts)

I have the greatest of pleasure in announcing a new appointment to the Youth Programme Team.

Jack brings some great skills the role to support the work of the Beaver Leaders across Norfolk.

Shelly O’Keefe – DCC Youth Programme.

A message from Jack:

Hey! I’m super excited to have been appointed as ACC Beavers, I’m looking forward to (eventually) getting around Norfolk to meet you all, but until then I’ll work on finding the best Zoom backgrounds to have during meetings!

Scouting experience:

Prior to this role, I was the District Youth Commissioner for Eastern Norwich and before that I lived in Lincolnshire where I was an Explorer leader and Cub leader. I’ve worked my way through the sections as well before becoming an adult leader.

Supporting Beavers:

I’m excited to start supporting Beaver colonies all over Norfolk and I hope to empower the leaders and Beavers to ensure they have the skills and confidence to be the best they can be.
I’ve got loads of ideas that I hope to start work on soon, with an aim to making sure Beavers have the opportunity to achieve top awards, have programmes that they want and ultimately have the best start to their Scouting journey.

What item would I take to a desert island:

So I feel like recently I’ve had loads of time to think about this, I would definitely take some potatoes, this may sound weird but hear me out, you can plant a few, eat a few, repeat.
Food supply sorted!
