Girlguiding’s Peer Education scheme is a great way to gain skills in areas ranging from communication to presentation and facilitation.
Our Peer Educators do an amazing job of helping guiding members aged 7+ to gain body confidence as part of the Free Being Me programme. It looks fantastic on your CV – and by supporting young people to feel good about themselves you can be sure that you’re part of something pretty special, too.
Peer Education is girl-led and an integral part of The Senior Section programme, tying into Look Wider programme.
All you need to do is sign up for a free Basic Training weekend. There is no training for you to sign up to at the moment – but there will be some soon! So keep checking back.
At the Training you’ll be shown how to safely and effectively deliver fun, interactive sessions. There are people available to support you locally – your 4 Coordinator and/or Senior Section Adviser. If you want to find out who is there to help Peer Educators, please ask your local Commissioner or email firstname.lastname@example.org
