The Company Section
The Company Section is tailored for young people aged 11 to 15. The Company section steps the learning curve up a notch by allowing them to take advantage of their new skills, physical development and strengthened sense of character. Young people who are part of this section, begin to gradually push the threshold of self-imposed limits. The programme is designed in such a way that they are eased into the mindset of “going forward” in life. Please Note: Ages for joining may vary from group to group. Please check with your local group for further details.
The uniform for the Company Section varies depending on the group they belong to. Generally it comes in two forms:
- A Royal Blue Polo Shirt with a Navy Blue Sweatshirt, accompanied by black trousers and black shoes
- A Royal Blue Boys’ Brigade shirt with an official Boys’ Brigade tie and belt, accompanied by black trousers and black shoes
Members of the Company Section will start out with an armband worn on the right arm to wear any badges they achieve. A second armband worn on the left arm may also be required dependant on progress and achievements throughout their time with the Company Section
Meetings are held on a weekly basis for 1½ – 2 hours and typically conclude by 9pm, however check our companies tab for your local company and more accurate times
The Company section Badge work is about continuing to learn new skills, making their own decisions and having fun doing it all. The Company badge work programme is in the same six key areas of
- Get Active
- Get Adventurous
- Get Creative
- Get Into The Bible
- Get Involved
- Get Learning
By completing a number of activities in each of the areas above the Company Section young people will gain their badges of Membership, Bronze, Silver and Gold. We also recognise a member’s loyalty to the company by awarding a service badge for their years within the company.
To Challenge the young people more in the Company Section they are encouraged to earn projected badges for each of the areas as well.
Company Section young people can also gain nights away awards and gain the Discovery Badge which is classed as a major award for that age group.
