Peer Educators are members of Girlguiding aged 14-25 who have been trained in one or more of our exciting resources to help girls grow and develop.

We have 3 brilliant resources to offer your girls, each developed in partnership with expert partners.


Free Being Me – Brownies and Guides

9 out of 10 women and girls opt out of important life experiences because they don’t feel confident about the way they look.

Developed in partnership with WAGGGS and Dove, Free Being Me helps girls to build body confidence and to fight back against the idea that there is only one way to look.

Think Resilient – Brownies, Guides and Rangers

71% of 11-21 year old girls know someone who has had mental health problems.

Developed in partnership with Young Minds, Think Resilient focuses on building mental strength and resilience. Girls will learn how to recognise when it is all getting too much, and start to build a toolkit of resilience building skills.

.


Breaking Free – Brownies, Guides and Rangers

76% of girls aged 7-10 think that jokes about girls being stupid and weak affects how people treat girls.

Developed in partnership with Gendered Intelligence, Breaking Free is our brand new resource, showing girls how to recognise harmful gender stereotypes and how to challenge them.

.

Free Being Me will take 2-3 unit meetings, while Think Resilient and Breaking Free will take one. All three resources then have a ‘Take it forward’ leaders’ session, to help girls put what they have learned into action. After completing the ‘Take it forward’ section, girls can be awarded with the relevant badge.

To find out more, you can look at the Peer Education e-learning, full of useful information for leaders and young members alike.
