Peer Education is girl-led and an integral part of The Ranger programme, tying into the Look Wider programme.
The aim is to enable the development of skills, knowledge and understanding of girls and young women by creating opportunities for them to learn from each other.
Many girls and young women today struggle with self-esteem. We’re tackling this head on through our peer education programme and Free Being Me.
Through this ground-breaking scheme, we equip members of The Senior Section with the skills they need to safely and effectively deliver fun, interactive sessions to guiding peers aged seven plus.
Arrange a Free Being Me session
Free Being Me is a fantastic way to help the girls and young women in your unit feel good about themselves. To arrange a visit from a Peer Educator contact the county Peer Educator Adviser:
