What are we doing today?
Each week The Boys' Brigade works with thousands of young people, many of whom have no other connection with the Church. Today we are working with over 60,000 children & young people in over 1500 companies (groups) in the UK & Republic of Ireland every week.
The Boys' Brigade provides a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 4 to 18 years old. These resources have been developed to help volunteer youth leaders work in a relevant and creative way. We hope through these programmes they will be able to make a positive contribution to a young person's life and be able to share their faith.
Our work is split into age groups as follows:
  • Anchors - for Boys aged 4 to 8 years (Aged 4-School Year 3)
  • Juniors - for Boys aged 8 to 11 years (School Years 4-6)
  • Company - for Boys aged 11 to 15 years (School Years 7-10)
  • Seniors - for young men aged 15 to 18 years (School Years 11-13 or equivalent)

Where have we come from?
The Boys' Brigade has been around for over 130 years and in 2013 we celebrated our 130th Anniversary. Our Founder Sir William Alexander Smith, included in our Object "The Promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness" and that has not been changed.
What has changed is how we go about promoting that object. We recognise that the influences surrounding our young people are not always helpful and that too many lose control at great cost to themselves, their families and the community. The answer is to catch the energy and enthusiasm of youth and to channel it purposefully.

Our Object
The Object of The Boys' Brigade is:
"The advancement of Christ's kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness."
