The gold Youth Peer Education Model has been implemented over the last 12 years, and draws on best practice global research, together with the learnings of pioneering organisations who have been implementing youth development programmes and peer education in Southern Africa for over a decade.
The gold Model uses the methodology of peer education, which harnesses the influence that young people have on their peers. Youth encourage each other to make informed choices and develop health-enhancing and purpose-driven social norms. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a summary of the standards and curriculum outcomes.
The gold Model is measured against the following outcomes which are a result of instilling purpose and grit in targeted youth from disenfranchised and vulnerable communities.
The gold Model uses, among other key theories, the above Progression of Change, and embraces a role-modelling and future-orientated approach.
