Abstract [en]

Aims: The purpose of this thesis is to describe peer educators’ experiences from the training given to them by The Leadership South Programme. The aim is also to describe the participants’ perceived self-empowerment and perceptions about their own learning and experiences of being a peer educator. The study also aims to explore how peer educators share their skills with others.

Methods: Grounded Theory is the method used for the research presented in this thesis. The data collection was done by open-ended questionnaires followed by qualitative interviews.

Results: The results show that the peer educators who participated in our study show increased self-esteem and motivation. The training has also given them increased knowledge in communicating, listening and facilitating others. Furthermore peer educators experienced increased self-awareness and learned how to motivate and support their peers and share information.

Abstract [sv]

Mål: Denna uppsats syftar till att undersöka hur ungdomar, som har genomgått Leadership South’s program, upplever utbildningen. Syftet är också att analysera deltagarnas upplevda känsla av egenmakt, så kallad empowerment, och uppfattningar om deras eget lärande och erfarenheter av att vara en fadder (peer educator). Slutligen vill vi också undersöka hur respondenterna agerar för att dela med sig av sina erfarenheter.

Metod: Grundad teori är den metod som använts i forskningen som presenteras i denna uppsats. Datainsamlingen genomfördes med hjälp av en enkät med öppna frågor följd av en kvalitativ intervju.

Resultat: Resultatet visar att de ungdomar som deltagit i vår undersökning har stärkts genom ökad självkänsla och ökad motivation. Utbildningen har också gett dem ökade kunskaper i kommunikation, att lyssna och att facilitera andra. Vidare har ungdomarna, genom ökad självkännedom, lärt sig att motivera och stötta sina kamrater och tillsammans dela och sprida information.
