Each week The Boys' Brigade works with thousands of young people, many of whom have no other connection with the Church. The Boys' Brigade provides a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 5 to 18 years old. The Company Section is for young people aged 11 to 15 years of age.
Please Note: Ages for joining vary from group to group, please check with your local group.
Those in the Company Section take part in the Discover programme, that enables you to;
- Take part in a fun, balanced and challenging programme
- Be recognised for your effort and achievement
- Build trusting relationships
It's all about learning new skills, making your own decisions and having fun. BB provides a safe environment to explore new possibilities and achieve personal goals while making friends and having adventures. Within Discover there are 3 programme zones as follows:
And it's up to each young person to work out which opportunities are relevant for them, whether it's improving football skills, podcasting or recycling.
Company Section have a special uniform that they can wear. As everyone wears the same thing they feel as though they belong. However nobody is excluded because they do not have the right clothes. The weekly section meeting would usually run for 1½ - 2 hours and will typically be finished by 9.00pm.
If you are interested in joining The Boys' Brigade, whether as a child or young person; or as a volunteer please get in touch with us and we can provide you with more details including where your nearest group is located.
