JUNIOR RANGER PROGRAM (JRP)
The Junior Ranger Program (JRP) was initiated in December 2018. The course is designed and instructed by the Malilangwe scouts and is funded by donors. The 22 boys, aged 16 to 19 years old, are selected from a neighboring rural school. The scouts act as mentors and pass on a diverse range of skills and wisdom to the young recruits. The course takes place during school holidays and totals nine weeks throughout the year. The curriculum is approved by The Ministry of Education.
Malilangwe has custom-built dormitories for the JRP and the boys are responsible for cleaning, washing and cooking meals while they are on the course. The scouts demonstrate high standards for levels of cleanliness and neatness, and the dormitories are inspected daily by the scouts and a member of Malilangwe management. Teamwork is paramount and is consistently encouraged through fitness, fun, discipline, and training.
