BlogMessengers of Peace Day of Service at the 2017 Jamboree

Posted on July 17, 2017 by

During the 2017 National Jamboree, participants will have the opportunity to take part in the Messengers of Peace Day of Service (MOPDOS) event, which will impact the nine counties around the Summit Bechtel Reserve. The MOPDOS team along with the West Virginia Citizens conservation corps have set up approximately 550 different service projects spread out through the nine surrounding counties. Along with the West Virginia Citizens Conservation Corps, the United States Navy will be partnered with the Messengers of Peace Day of Service this year.

These service projects will be completed on July 20, 21, 24, 25, and 26 during the Jamboree. Each Troop and Crew that is attending the Jamboree will be assigned to a specific day that is listed above. There will be approximately 120 units working on a service project during each work day. More information regarding the Messengers of Peace will be located at the Duty to God and Country Pavilion at the Jamboree.
Every unit that will be working on a project each day will report into their respective boarding location at the time listed on the MOPDOS boarding schedule located on the 2017 National Jamboree App. Each participant that will be working on a service project during their assigned day should bring their lunch, a first aid kit, and a filled water bottle when they board their bus to go to their service project for the day.
