Looking for something different to do with your unit after the summer? How about having a Peer Educator along to your unit?
Peer Educators are Girlguiding members aged 14-25 years, who are trained in delivering fun and interactive sessions on matters which are important to girls and young women. As young people, they use their own experience to bring the subject to life. Peer Educators run fun, safe and challenging sessions which we develop with expert partners. They can deliver sessions on:
- Think Resilient – gives Brownies, Guides and members of The Senior Section the tools to build their mental well-being. Developed with YoungMinds
- Free Being Me – grows girls’ body confidence and self-esteem. Developed with WAGGGS and the Dove Self-Esteem Project
- Healthy Relationships – helps Brownies to be good and safe friends, and helps Guides and The Senior Section to tell whether a romantic relationship is healthy. Developed with AVA and Women’s Aid
- Youth Health – empowers Guides and members of The Senior Section to make their own decisions about alcohol, smoking, drugs and sex. Developed with the Department of Health.
In Fife we are so lucky to have 3 active Peer Educators, so how about consider inviting them to deliver a session with your unit? To find out more about Peer Education, to book in a visit (subject to the Peer Educator’s availability), or to express an interest in becoming a Peer Educator yourself, please email Erin (Peer Education Co-ordinator) on firstname.lastname@example.org.
