Go Mad!

Go MAD in 2011

We all know young people who make a significant difference in the lives of others. It may be through volunteering for Founder's Badge or Gaisce Award. It may be something that they have been inspired to do after realising a need.

After the continued success since its launch in 2008, nominations for 2011 are now open. click on image to find out more.

The Boys' Brigade want to recognise that commitment through the Go Make a Difference awards to acknowledge, encourage, reward and most importantly promote the positive achievements of our young people. All nominations will receive a certificate to acknowledge their contributions. Regional Committees will select three young people who in their opinion should receiver special recognition and an award. Regions will then nominate young people whose volunteering efforts are worthy of national recognition to go forward to a UK & ROI Celebration and Awards Ceremony. We want to hear from you about outstanding young people, aged between 15 and 19, who have been actively engaged in volunteering that we can celebrate and acknowledge. Nominations for the 2011 award can now be submitted, download the Nomination Form. All nominations MUST be received by 1st May 2011. Click here for nomination form ...

The BB's Disability Advice Network (part of our ongoing work on Equal Opportunities) was set up to support and advise any company or individual on a range of disability issues. If you would like to include children or young people with particular needs or disabilities, then an adviser will be able to suggest some ways of going about this. more
