Boys’ Brigade

Sir William Alexander Smith founded The Boys’ Brigade (BB) on 4 October 1883 at the Free College Mission Hall at North Woodside Road, Glasgow, Scotland. It is the world’s first uniformed organisation for youth and has spread all over the world, inspiring numerous other groups such as The Girls’ Brigade in 1893 and Boy Scouts in 1907.


The need to engage boys in meaningful and purposeful activities is as relevant around the world today as it was more than 130 years ago in Scotland. The BB method in the development of youth has stood the test of time and has proven to be successful in moulding Boys to be responsible Men in the Family, the Community, the Nation and the World.  BB seeks to provide a fun, meaningful and challenging programme for the holistic development of the boys centred on good character-building values passed down from a Christian tradition.  In particular, the emphasis is on leadership development, team building, life skills, adventure activities and community service.
