Peer Education Weekend at Lyneal

We now have 19 new Peer Educators ready to run sessions for your units across Shropshire.

Last weekend saw 19 senior section members from across the county spend a weekend at our residential centre in Lyneal, training to become Peer Educators.

Peer Educators are 14 to 26 year olds who help Brownies, Guides and The Senior Section think and talk about issues which are important to them. As young people, they use their own experiences to bring the subject to life. They can currently train on:

  • Think Resilient – a new program which gives Brownies, Guides and members of The Senior Section the tools to build their mental well-being.
  • Free Being Me – a program developed by WAGGGS and the Dove Self-Esteem Project to grow girls’ body confidence and self-esteem.

Peer Educators can be booked by any Brownie, Guide or Senior Section unit within the county and will run a session on a topic of your choosing for your girls. To book one of our peer educators, please click here.
