Sen. Manchin visits the World Scout Jamboree
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) attended the 24th World Scout Jamboree hosted by the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in Glen Jean, West Virginia. For the first time since 1967, the World Scout Jamboree is being held in the United States. This year’s World Scout Jamboree theme, “Unlock a New World,” was designed for hardworking and dedicated Scouts to become exposed to new experiences, new cultures and new friends. The 24th World Scout Jamboree is an educational event that brings together tens of thousands of young men and women from over 120 countries around the world. With over two million youth volunteers and one million adult volunteers, Scouts make a huge difference in all communities across the globe. In 2018, there were more than 7.5 million hours of volunteer work completed among Eagle Scouts alone.
