Peer Education

Peer educators are 14-25-year-olds who help Brownies, Guides and Rangers explore important topics.

It works because girls are eager to listen to their peers who share similar life experiences.

Peer educators run fun, safe and challenging sessions developed with expert partners. They can deliver sessions on:

 

  • Think Resilient - gives girls the tools to build their mental well-being. Developed with YoungMinds.
  • Breaking Free - gives girls the tools to challenge gender stereotypes. Developed with expert academics, CEOs and charities.
  • Safe The World – helps members make a stand for safety. Developed with charity experts and police officers.

What does a peer education session look like?

  • The peer educator will come prepared to run the whole meeting, taking some of the pressure off you – although you’ll still be responsible for supporting the session.
  • The peer educator will draw on their own life experiences to enable open and honest discussions.
  • The session will be packed with fun activities, so your girls will have a great time as well as learn something from their peers.
  • Depending on the topic, you’ll have some activities to continue exploring the subject with your unit after the session.
