We have a team of peer educators aged 14-25 in Scotland. They’ve been trained to run safe, fun, and challenging sessions for their peers on issues like mental well-being, challenging gender stereotypes and making a stand for safety. The sessions are developed with expert partners to support Brownies, Guides and Rangers.
Do you want to challenge gender stereotypes? Give girls the tools to build their mental well-being? Make a stand for safety? Then becoming a peer educator could be for you! You can find out more about peer education and how to become a peer educator on the Girlguiding website. If you would like to get involved, keep an eye on our events for upcoming peer education training weekends or get in touch so we can let you know when the next one is happening. Help us change the world one girl at a time.
Peer educators are role models girls can relate to. They help girls to learn about things which directly affect their lives. Would you like to bring peer education into your unit?
Our peer educators can deliver fun, interactive sessions to their peers in Brownies, Guides and Rangers. They can deliver age-appropriate sessions on Think Resilient, Breaking Free or Safe the world.
Before the session, you will chat with the peer educator to discuss your unit, what will happen during the session and how much you will need to get involved.
