Thank you to everyone that has applied to be part of the International Service Team at European Jamboree 2020. We have had a huge amount of applications that we are currently processing and will get back to you as soon as possible. 

What have I applied for?

The European Jamboree brings young people together from all over Europe and the world in Gdańsk, Poland. It takes place from 26 July to 7 August 2020.

The International Service Team are the ones who help to make the jamboree happen! 

As a member of the team you must be ready to take on any task that's needed to create the jamboree. You'll be part of the team running activities and there are also places to support the Girlguiding UK international tents. Here's just some examples of what you could be doing: 

  • Transport including driving minibuses and loading coaches
  • Site services including security and lighting
  • Delivering specialist activities and general programme support
  • Guest services including shop assistants, reception and translation
  • Catering including food preparation and meal service

You can also take part in an inspiring programme of activities just for members of the International Service Team - all in your very own adult volunteer space: 

  • Physical - yoga, zumba, fitness and games, as well as eat healthy and be active workshops
  • Intellectual - learn new skills and develop your talents and creativity
  • Emotional - chat with other adult volunteers or simply relax in cafes and chill-out zones
  • Social - concerts, parties and cultural activities
  • Spiritual - explore different faiths, beliefs and attitudes that are meaningful to young people 


The event cost for an International Service Team member is £600. This covers food, accommodation, activities, team kit, insurance and the briefing weekend. It doesn't include flights or travel to Gdansk.

The payment plan is: 

  • Deposit £60 - on confirmation of place
  • First payment instalment £240 - November 2019
  • Final payment instalment £300 - February 2020

I've applied when will my place be confirmed?

If you have applied for the European Jamboree IST, your application will be being processed. In order to confirm your place we first need to receive a reference from your county commissioner. This can sometimes take a little while.

Once we have your reference we will send you details on how to pay the deposit. Once your deposit has been paid we can confirm your place on European Jamboree. 

Some references may come back quicker than others so please bear with us while we process these. If you have any concerns or you can no longer commit to European Jamboree please let us know on: [email protected].

We look forward to welcoming you to the European Jamboree IST team.
