as it came to the Bubenjungscharen?
When the idea of the Cevi arrived into Switzerland, existed already the Cevi similar groups. They followed the Cevi idea. Owing to Henri Dunant spread the Cevi in French Switzerland fast. Lively by the Romands soon groups in the large cities of German Switzerland developed. The English Cevi brought the Pfadibewegung into Switzerland. After some years the Pfadi formed - its own federation for groups. Some groups remained also members of the Cevi movement. The child and groups of young people of the Cevi grew however only since the 70's-years with the today's form of the Jungschararbeit. The Seuzacher material school teacher (upper stage) Rolf Wehrli coined/shaped this development relevant. Over the time the Cevi groups had to overcome some heavy crises. Each time the Cevi movement came out strengthened from them.
as it came to the Mädchenjungscharen?
1934 educated the CVJF national executive committee the commission “national commission of the Jungscharen” - there there were already groups of girls. In Basel they were well-known as the girls with the blue Jupes and the white blouses. 1967 became Susanne Hofer as 1. Secretary of the Mädchenjungschar for the region Basel employed. Together with women from the region Zurich took place in the same year the first training course for Jungscharleiterinnen. In the next years the Mädchenjungschararbeit visibly grew. Starting from 1981 all 5 German-Swiss regions (AG-THEN-Lu-ZG, Basel, Berne, east Switzerland and Zurich) had their own Jungscharsekretärin. Always new departments pushed in addition. In the 90's-years in many regions the courses were revised and changed.
