Nathalie is a volunteer in the association Lëtzebuerger Guiden a Scouten (LGS).

1. How did you join the organisation Lëtzebuerger Guiden a Scouten?
When I was 6 years old, my parents registered me as a scout.

2. How long have you been a volunteer?
I have been a volunteer scout leader for 14 years.

3. Why did you get involved?
I had a great time as a Scout in my childhood and teenage years and I would like to enable children and young people to do the same.

4. What are your missions?

At local level, I am a leader of a group of young people aged between 13 and 17 years old as well as the secretary of the local group's association.

At national level, I am responsible for the sustainable development working group and a member of the organising group of a big national scout camp.

5. How do you feel useful?
By organising all kinds of activities and getting involved, we enable young people to have a good time and contribute to the continuation of scouting.
6. What are your sources of satisfaction?

I have two main sources of satisfaction: seeing that so many children and young people can still have such a good time in scouting and the strong collective feeling that characterises scouting.
