2020 LaSERIO participant selection event

We're searching for participants for next year's region international expeditions. If you're a Ranger, get involved in LaSERIO 2020!

Would you like to join us on one of our amazing LaSERIO expeditions in 2020? The region needs teams of Rangers to go to India, the Philippines, Kenya and China. If you'd like to be considered, you'll need to be nominated by your county - so contact them for an application form now!

Far more than just a holiday, these expeditions involve over a year of planning and preparation to provide a truly immersive cultural experience for participants. You'll get to explore the country you visit, but you'll also take part in a two-to-three week service project in a local community there too, as well as get an opportunity to meet Girl Guides or Girl Scouts from that country.

It really was an expedition of a lifetime and I hope I get the opportunity in the future to embark on another one of these life-changing experiences.

— Megan Boulton, LaSERIO 2018 Ecuador participant

Nothing makes me smile more than the memories I have of seeing the sheer excitement on the children’s faces as we arrived each day by bus and left… they literally came chasing after us with the biggest smiles that erupted into roars of laughter

— Lulu, LaSERIO 2018 Malawi participant

You may have heard about some of the trips run by region to volunteer in another country, but may have been previously afraid to apply. I am here to tell you that you shouldn't be ... a really fun and rewarding trip which has provided me with memories which I will treasure forever.

— Pearl Gerald, LaSERIO 2018 Costa Rica participant

I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to go on such an amazing trip and experience such a brilliant culture ... This experience was eye-opening, life-changing, and incredibly memorable for me, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to meet so many inspirational and strong people.

— Cassia Taylor, LaSERIO 2018 Cambodia participant
