Does your church need youth work that:

  • Works in partnership with your church
  • Provides a bridge into your community & a link with non-church families
  • shares in mission and outreach
  • provides a fully resourced programme
  • trains and supports leaders
  • values young people and releases their potential

The Boys' Brigade will care for and challenge young people for life through a programme of informal education underpinned by the Christian faith. 

This will be achieved by ...

  • Delivering Christian teaching in partnership with the church in which the company is based and encouraging the development of a personal Christian faith providing opportunities for leadership, decision making and skills training
  • Empowering boys and young people by involving them in decision making at all levels of the organisation and giving responsibility appropriate to their age and aptitude
  • Raising awareness of boys and young people to the needs of others (especially other young people) locally, nationally and globally and encouraging them to engage in activities and projects in which they can make a difference 
  • Being sensitive to the needs and aspirations of boys and young people of varying backgrounds, differing abilities and stages of development and providing appropriate support, advice and guidance
  • Ensuring the safety of boys and young people through the implementation of suitable procedures for the selection, training and supervision of leaders
  • Equipping leaders through the provision of high quality training and resources
  • Providing a network of professional staff to support voluntary leaders 
  • Creating opportunities to develop partnerships with other appropriate organisations and agencies
