Peer educators are 14-25 year olds who help Brownies, Guides and Rangers explore important topics. We train our young members to lead fun and interactive sessions on important topics. We ask girls what issues they want to talk about and create resources that are relevant to them, for example on mental well-being and body confidence. As young people, Peer Educators use their own experience to bring the subject to life. Peer educators run fun, safe and challenging sessions which we develop with expert partners.
To book a Peer education session please contact Sophia, the BGO Peer Education Coordinator at this address.
