Girls trust their peers – that’s why Peer Education works!

We have a team of around 70 peer educators aged 14-25 in Scotland. They’ve been trained to run safe, fun and challenging sessions for their peers on issues like body confidence, mental well-being and challenging gender stereotypes. The sessions are developed with expert partners to support Brownies, Guides and Rangers.

What sessions do they deliver?

  • Think Resilient helps gives members the tools to build their mental well-being and was developed with the charity YoungMinds
  • Free Being Me helps grows girls’ body confidence and self-esteem and was developed with WAGGGS and the Dove Self-Esteem Project
  • Breaking Free gives girls the tools to challenge any gender stereotype that limits them and makes it harder for them to reach their goals. Gender stereotyping happens every day. It’s in the way clothes are designed, the toys we give children and the jobs we’re encouraged to do. It’s time to challenge these gender stereotypes which make it harder for young people to achieve their dreams
  • Find Your Safe (coming soon) You are not a damsel in distress. You don’t need a superhero to save you! Including boundary-setting, assertiveness and de-escalation, get an empowering toolbelt of strategies to help you take on the world.

Online Think Resilient sessions!

The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has caused many girls and young women to experience negative effects on their mental health. Our team of peer educators based in Scotland have tailored Think Resilient to be delivered online – now you can book a session for your girls if you’re running online meetings!
