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 Emma, the BGO Peer Education Coordinator at this address.

Hi! I’m Emma and my role is to support all the Peer Educators in British Girlguiding Overseas, organise Peer Educator trainings and represent British Girlguiding Overseas at national Peer Education meetings. I’ve been guiding since I joined Rainbows when I was five and have volunteered with all of the sections over the years. I joined British Girlguiding Overseas more recently when I lived in Singapore in 2017. I volunteered at a Rainbow unit there and then ran some Peer Education sessions in Singapore and in Kuala Lumpur. Since then I have taken up this role as Peer Education Coordinator and run sessions in more British Girlguiding Overseas locations as well as organising and running a training for 20 new British Girlguiding Overseas Peer Educators. My role is to support those Peer Educators and continue to provide training opportunities as well as to answer any queries anyone has about Peer Education - so please feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions!
