For young members
Region opportunities for young members can only be accessed by applying through the County.
The exception to this is ICE (International Community Experience) which is aimed at Guides aged 11-14. Young members need to apply directly to Girlguiding Anglia to take part and the information can be found on the Girlguiding Anglia website
Leaders who are interested in leading a region trip may apply directly to region and their event information can be found on the Girlguiding Anglia Website (usually held in May/June).
International volunteer opportunities
- expression of interest for leaders
As we work to rebuild our international offer, we are having to recognise both the need to rebuild confidence in the girls and their parents, with regards to travelling abroad, as well as the impact of the experience lost because of the pandemic: girls may never have been on a unit camp, a school trip, or even a family holiday overseas. Equally important, is ensuring we have leaders who are able to help our girls to explore the world.
We are planning to pull together a database of leaders who might be interested in an international event, whether at region, county, division, district, or unit level. GO gives us details of leaders’ qualifications, but not necessarily their interests.
Although some events might have an upper age limit, many do not and we are therefore looking for leaders of all ages.
The requisite going away with qualifications are handy but not essential if you are part of a leadership team. Leaders from all sections are welcome. You don’t even need to be a keen camper, as there are plenty of events which do not involve tents.
Expressing an interest does not guarantee you a trip and neither does it commit you to anything. What it will do is enable all of us across Girlguiding Anglia to be aware of leaders who might be interested and available, to enable us to make plans for 2024-2026.
If you would like to be added to our database, please complete the form below and e-mail it to [email protected] Should you wish to be removed from that list at any time simply send another e-mail to that address.Expression of interest form
