Southwark Council has teamed up with Youth Voice Specialists, Participation People, yet again for the 2023-24 Peer Education Project.
The project will train and support over 60 young people across Southwark (aged 13-18, or up to 25 for SEND groups) to become peer educators in substance misuse, smoking, and alcohol. The aim is to reduce substance misuse in the borough and cut down on group & weapon violence, and violence against women and girls.
Participation People will empower young people to make positive change by planning, delivering, and evaluating the project on behalf of Southwark Council and would love to bring the opportunity to your community/youth provision.
We are looking for organisations (of any size and specialism) to host 1 of 4 one-day events where Youth Specialists from Participation People will deliver a fun and full interactive peer educator training day for 15-20 of the Young People who engage with your provision.
Plus, the project is fully funded by Southwark Council (thanks!)
Young people will have a laugh, get creative, create a positive social impact, and earn an AQA Peer Education Accreditation for their efforts.
The project is flexible, as we’re looking to manage and deliver these Peer Education training sessions in a way that suits you, between now and March 2024 – so we can tailor the opportunity to meet your needs and the needs of the young people you engage.
If you think you could take advantage of this opportunity, then please get in touch with Callum Elliott at Participation People for more information (or just to chat about Youth Voice) on 07936 330 462 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you!
