The name comes from a small Polynesian island nation. The scouts chose the name themselves, and guessed most people wouldn’t know where it was or what it meant. Perhaps appropriate for an international troop with members from many different countries, although I don’t think we’ve ever had anyone from Tuvalu. I wonder if they were secretly hoping to be invited to visit!
- Tuvalu Scouts meets on Mondays 18:15-20:15 at Parc Cinquantenaire (Drop off point).
Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers! All adult leaders have a safeguarding check before starting and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified. Like many expats some of our leaders travel for work, so we try to have a large team.
You don’t need to have experience as training is available. It’s good fun working with the young people, and a way to make a difference for families and the wider community.
