I first learned about Kandersteg International Scout Centre (KISC) in the Eurasia Regional Office, Crimea, Ukraine. I was the participant of the Eurasia Regional Training Course "Excelscout-06" in Krasnokamenka, 16 - 23 August 2008. As a result of participating in the Course, I got an opportunity to apply to Kandersteg International Scout Centre as a member of the voluntary staff team. I was very glad to get a chance to live for 3 months in the International Scout atmosphere and to work at the famous Scout Centre in Switzerland.
With the support of the Eurasia Regional Office, I sent an application for Short Term Staff at KISC. Alexander S. Bondar, Eurasia Office Director, wrote the recommendation for my application.
