Girlguiding Anglia wants to hear from members keen to get involved in our TikTok this summer!

The Background

New kid on the block TikTok has sky-rocketed to fame over the last 18 months with now over a billion users worldwide. The app is not just popular with the under 18’s but it is shown to be reaching a growing demographic of millennials and zillenials too.

We think TikTok is a great way to ensure the voices and guiding experiences of our girls and young women across the whole of Anglia are at the heart of everything we do.

The Opportunity

We are wanting to hear from anyone who is interested in video and social media, or passionate about sharing their guiding experiences to apply to help us create video content for the launch of our TikTok this summer!

This opportunity will see volunteers work with the Communications Team to film and edit a range of short videos (7-60 seconds) that will go live on our new TikTok page.

Aiming to boost the number of region level volunteer opportunities available this year, we are offering content creator projects to multiple members and we continue this throughout the year.

To get involved please email us with your interest at commsteam@girl-guiding-anglia.org.uk or you can find out more if you click here.

Initially this volunteering opportunity was only open to Inspire section candidates and Queen’s Guides, but now we want to hear from all sections as well as leaders wanting to get involved too!

The Launch Video

The launch is anticipated to coincide with Girlguiding Anglia’s Fiesta Fun weekend – a celebration for our members that is taking place on the 17th and 18th July 2021.

To get involved in our Fiesta Fun ‘Mexican Wave’ video, Girlguiding Anglia would like members and volunteers of any age to please send in a short clip of them doing their best ‘Mexican Wave’. We will then make your submissions into a fun compilation video that will be used to launch our TikTok page.  

Mexican Wave video submissions can be emailed to commsteam@girlguiding-anglia.org.uk

Please can you ensure that entries are with us by Sunday 4th July 2021 to be considered for the launch video. You can submit your Mexican Wave video sooner – if you can’t contain the excitement! Any questions? Please email the Comms Team on the address provided.

How to get involved in our TikTok launch

As this is an ongoing opportunity, there is no firm deadline for registering your interest or receiving applications but those wanting to get involved with the launch should get in touch as soon as possible. Girlguiding Anglia’s Communications Team are hoping to provide their first induction session towards the end of May 2021 – so get in touch today!
