International opportunities: Expression of interest for leaders


Are you passionate about guiding and travel, and keen to share your passions and experience?

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.

Could you be one of those leaders?

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.

Contrary to the guiding myth, we are not looking only for those under 30, some events might have an upper age limit but many do not.  Neither are we looking only for those with the requisite Going Away With qualifications, they can be handy but are not essential if you are part of a leadership team.  We are not looking only for those who work with Guides, or Rangers:  Rainbow and Brownie leaders are just as welcome.  You don’t even need to be a keen camper, as there are plenty of events which do not involve tents.

What you do need to be though is someone who is passionate about guiding and travel, and keen to share your passions and experience.

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.

  1. Willing to help where I can, but not to lead a trip etc leave that to the younger ones to get the experience! Obviously my experience is probably out of date!

    1. Hi Diane,
      That’s great, please fill in the form and e-mail to Anglia. They will add you to their list of interested leaders.

  2. Hi, I love to take my Brownies and Rangers away. I have taken Brownies to Disneyland Paris several times and also on a region trip to Denmark.
