Opportunities for Girls
Girlguiding Scotland has a team of around 70 peer educators. Peer educators are aged 14-25 and have been trained to run safe, fun and challenging sessions for their peers on issues like body confidence, mental well-being and bullying. The sessions are developed with expert partners to support Brownies, Guides and Rangers.
Peer Education works because girls trust their peers. The peer educators bring their own life experience to the subject to help bring it to life.

is Girlguiding Scotland’s youth voice, influencing the direction of our advocacy and shaping the future of guiding in Scotland. It gives girls a platform to use their voices and seek change at the highest levels.
How does it work?
Speak Out is a forum for Girlguiding Scotland members led by a peer elected committee who are responsible for running the group, whether it’s planning the next get-together or publicising upcoming opportunities.
The group holds day and weekend events all around Scotland. Speak Out events are a great way to try new activities, gain new skills and to influence the advocacy work in Scotland.
