Do you think all girls should have a chance to learn ways to build their own well-being?
Then you should become a Peer Educator.
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 throughout the UK.
Becoming a Peer Educator is about changing the world – one girl at a time
When it comes to talking about issues they’re passionate about, girls need you. It’s been proven that you, as a young woman, can have a huge impact on girls’ lives. You bring important issues to life because you know what it’s like to be young today.
As a peer educator you’ll walk into unit meetings and deliver sessions on things girls have told us they want to talk about. You will create a safe space for them to discuss subjects like self-esteem, mental wellbeing and challenging gender stereotypes. You’ll run activities which give them tools that will help them through the rest of their lives.
