ICE – Queen’s Guide Volunteer Roles

Do you want to help inspire and empower the next generation of young girls?

22-24 January 2021 3 Stages, first stage is taking place virtually

Our International Team is on the lookout for up to 2 Queen’s Guide Volunteers to get involved with the community action element of the 2021 ICE project!

What’s ICE?

ICE (International Community Experience) is an amazing three-stage project open to members of Girlguiding aged 11-13, which brings Guides together from all over Scotland to have fun while doing something for others. It offers the opportunity for personal development through community action work, teamed with an introduction to international experiences.

This is a great chance for girls to increase their global awareness too! Guides who have taken part in the past have done everything from sorting donated clothes at a refugee crisis centre and planting trees, to climbing, African drumming, and so much more!

ICE 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ICE 2021 Stage 1 will be a virtual event, held online with up to 100 Guides. The dates for Stage 2 will be reviewed in September 2020, and will be shared with the ICE 2021 team shortly after this date.
