Connect! with your peers

Connect! Peer Education

When listening to a talk or presentation do you ever feel like you could get the message across in a more interesting and energetic way?

If so, then we need your help, ideas and enthusiasm to reach out to other 16-25 year olds. Get involved with our Peer Education Project to learn about the Scottish Parliament and how young people can have their voices heard. We'll help you become a Peer Educator and support you to deliver sessions of your own! 

Getting involved can lead to change – as it did for Gemma Mackintosh (17), who campaigned for better support for children with visual impairments, and Amal Azzudin (21), who campaigned against practice of dawn raids on failed asylum seekers.
