Background:

 

From its establishment in 1998, Bright Future School has been working in the development of a local identity with global understanding of cultures, traditions and ways of life of the various communities we have in our world.

The First Cultural Exchange Program BFS undertook was in December 2004, when 8 students were taken for the east African Zonal Competitions in Nairobi, Kenya. Next our students participated in the 21st World Scout Jamboree, UK in 2007 and the 22nd World Scout Jamboree, Sweden in 2011 as part of the Ethiopian National Contingent.

In 2012, BFS joined a cultural exchange program organized by the Exchange Project Inc. in which 7 students took part.

In 2013, BFS was part of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Jamboree in Mount Hope, West Virginia, USA with 36 BFS Scouts taking part in this historic event.

In 2014, BFS took part in the Exchange Project’s cultural exchange Program for the second time, increasing the numbers of students to 22 from the first 7.  

In 2015,  BFS took its students to be part of the 23rd World Scout Jamboree as members of the Ethiopian Scouts Contingent in Yamaguchi, Japan in the summer of 2015.

In 2016,  16 Students represented Bright Future School in the Michigan International Camporee where youth from over 30 countries got together to learn several high-level survival skills.

2017 saw 2 groups of Bright Future School represent us in the United States' Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree and educational cultural exchange with St. Eskills Gymansium ( an International Baccalaureate school) located in Eskills Tuna, Sweden. 

Future Cultural and Scout events:

These projects and programs are planned to continue in the coming academic year by first hosting students from the St. Eskills Gymnasium. We will share more information as summer 2018 draws near. 

BFS is interested in expanding its educational, and cultural exchange programs, interested schools and organizations are more than welcome to contact us.
