International: Pen Pal Program
 



The Pen-Pal Program offers a means of communicating with other Scouts abroad and provides an "international experience" without necessarily having to leave town.  In this section you will find the following Pen-Pal Program info:


 
Who can have a pen pal?


To be a part of this program you must be a registered Scout member - Adult or Youth
 


To register


To register as a Pen Pal please go to the Scouts Australia Website and click on Register your interest.

Further information is available from the Pen Pal State Coordinator
 
 


What are the benefits?


You have the opportunity to make a new friend from within our international family.
For many this will help you complete part of your award scheme and ensure you learn about the life of another scout in their part of the world.
You can build a relationship with your Pen pal that can last a lifetime.
Your whole Mob, Pack, Troop or Unit can get involved with your section equivalent somewhere in the world and swap program ideas and camp experiences.
Leaders can exchange ideas and gain support from an international source who has, in most cases, similar interests and goals.
