Delegates of the 14th World Scout Youth Forum have elected today six Youth Advisors to the World Scout Committee (WSC) to serve during the 2021-2024 Triennium.
The voting took place on the 19 and 20 August after 18 individuals presented their candidacy for election to the 746 Youth Forum participants representing 163 National Scout Organizations.

The WSC is the “board” of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM). It is one of three constitutive bodies of WOSM, alongside the World Scout Conference and the World Scout Bureau. The WSC is responsible for the implementation of the decisions of the World Scout Conference and for acting on its behalf between its meetings. Youth Advisors play a key role in the decision-making of the WSC.

- Ms Fatima Aliyeva, Azerbaijan
- Ms Yoobinnara Kim, Republic of Korea
- Ms Reese Medina, Belize
- Mr Alhassan Soltan, Egypt
- Mr Maman Lamine Soumana Ide Issa, Niger
- Ms Melissa Wilm Senna Pinto, Brazil
In accordance with the World Scout Youth Forum Guidelines, the Youth Advisors’ mandate will start on the closure of the 42nd World Scout Conference and will finish at the closure of the 43rd World Scout Conference in 2024 together with the WSC Members which they serve alongside.
