Peer Education

Peer Educators are guiding members aged 14 to 25 who are trained to run sessions on topics for Brownies, Guides, Ranges and members 18+, as well as anyone outside Guiding aged 7+. Sessions by Peer Educators are delivered in a fun, informal and sensitive manner, through games and activities tailored to suit participants’ needs on topical issues such as body confidence, mental health resilience and breaking stereotypes.

Peer Education can help young women develop confidence, gain useful skills and learn about important issues to enhance CV’s as well as offer a chance to meet new people, make a difference in a local community and have fun! Taking part will count towards Queens Guide and/or Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Want to become a Peer Educator?

To become a Peer Educator you must attend a "Skills" training day to develop the skills needed to become a Peer Educator.

When trained as a Peer Educator you can attend, topic training days for:
  • Free Being Me
  • Think Resilient
  • Breaking Free
After completing topic trainings you are able to deliver sessions in these topics to the relevant age group and sections.

Peer Educators can gain Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards for delivering 4, 25 and 50 sessions. Peer Educators can log their sessions here.

Why put Peer Education sessions into your programme?

Peer Education sessions are a fun and interactive way to explore topics and issues relevant to young people today, through a series of games and activities. Peer Education sessions support your Unit Members in developing their opinions and speak up with confidence in a safe space on a range of topics. So why not enhance your weekly programme with an exciting and different unit meeting that involves little planning! (Please note: you will be expected to attend and be responsible for the girls, as usual and support the Peer Educator as required.)
