Peer-to-peer Learning

In peer-to-peer learning, members of the same group are linked to each other and encouraged to share their knowledge and skills in a formal or informal way. For example, young people can facilitate a workshop for other young people or young sex people who engage in sex work become mentors to each other. This is an important capacity strengthening strategy for CHOICE. Peer-to-peer learning is thought to be an effective strategy, as peers are far more likely to understand each other’s contexts and knowledge gaps, and have often faced similar barriers. Furthermore, it also simultaneously strengthens young people’s facilitation, training, mentorship and leadership skills so that advocates strengthen their own and each other’s capacities at the same time. Lastly, sharing knowledge, skills, and lessons learned between peers results in mutual learning and more effective working methods and strategies, thereby also empowering young people and contributing to a stronger youth movement.
