16th Teesside Boys Brigade

Each week The Boys’ Brigade works with thousands of young people many of whom have no church connection. Nationally the organisation works with over 60,000 children & young people in over 1500 companies (groups) in the UK & Republic of Ireland every week.
The Boys’ Brigade recognise that the influences surrounding today’s young people can be far from helpful and that too many lose control at great cost to themselves, their families and the community.
The B.B.s’ answer is to catch the energy and enthusiasm of youth and to channel it purposefully via a programme of achievements. The Boys are awarded badges in recognition of their work and should they complete the programme will be presented with the B.B. Presidents Badge and then their Queens Badge should they wish to pursue this route.
