Peer Education is Girlguiding's innovative programme that trains members aged 14 to 25 to empower themselves and others to make a difference in the lives of girls here in Cornwall
Peer educators are 14-to-25 year olds who help Brownies, Guides and Rangers explore important topics. As young people, they use their own experience to bring the subject to life.
Being girl-led makes all the difference
It works because girls are eager to listen to their peers who share similar life experiences.
Peer educators run fun, safe and challenging sessions which we develop with expert partners. They can deliver sessions on:
Breaking Free - gives girls the tools to challenge gender stereotypes. Developed with expert academics, CEOs and charities.
Healthy Relationships – helps Brownies to be good and safe friends, and helps Guides, The Senior Section and Rangers to tell whether a romantic relationship is healthy. Developed with AVA and Women's Aid
Youth Health – empowers Guides and Rangers to make their own decisions about alcohol, smoking, drugs and sex. Developed with the Department of Health.
Request a peer educator
Request a peer educator to come and run a session with your Brownie, Guide or Ranger unit.
