Youth Behaviour Change
The Peer2Peer Youth product-offering targets government departments, teachers, faith based and community youth organizations. It offers them a tried-and-tested methodology that can result in positive changes amongst youth in social behaviour change, leadership development, employability competencies and education support.
Peer2Peer Youth is gold Enterprise’s flagship youth behaviour-change and capacity-building product suite– it’s made up of a set of comprehensive DIY life skills and leadership-development manuals (with supporting videos) for use by peer education managers, teachers, trainers and or peer educators.
Effective Peer Education is a dynamic process where well trained youth work within their specific school or community context to achieve significant goals, including increasing knowledge and skills on critical issues influencing youth behaviour, especially behaviour that is influenced by peer group norms.
Peer education as a methodology, whether used in schools or communities, relies heavily on the quality of training of peer educators. However, many organisations and private companies who want to harness the power of peer education don’t have the resources to develop a full peer education programme. Peer2Peer Youth is a comprehensive training and capacity building toolkit that provides an option for those looking for a lower cost training solution that they can implement themselves, but which still harnesses the benefits of peer education for their organisation and is based on evidence based peer education standards and lessons learnt through 12 years of the tried and tested gold model.
Peer2Peer Youth resources are well complimented by the additional menu of training and capacity building courses, the minimum of which is a 5 day behaviour change course (accreditation optional).
Peer2Peer Youth resources cover a diverse range of topics related to self-development, health and wellness, leadership, relationships, as well as HIV and risk behaviour prevention. Tailored to meet the needs of a wide variety of youth contexts, Peer2Peer integrates the best practices of the gold model in a way that users can adapt these based on their scope and needs.
Even if you don’t want to implement a full peer education programme, you will find our training sessions helpful in delivering a life skills programme. gold Enterprises can also offer its consulting skills to help you develop your own content based on your specific desired outcome of change.
