What is the “Senior Section”?
The Seniors Section is for young people between the ages of 15 and 18. Throughout their time in the Senior Section, young people take part in a varied programme. This gives members the opportunity to take part in projects, earn awards and push their personal boundaries through physical, mental and spiritual development.
It’s all about learning and specialising new skills, empowerment, taking responsibility and having fun. The Boys’ Brigade provides a safe environment to truly push your boundaries, achieve personal goals, build a network of friends and having adventures every step of the way.
Every member of the Seniors Section should expect to:
- Overcome new challenges
- Build integrity
- Be heard and have their say
- Be respected and valued
- Enjoy the entire process and have fun
- Develop a personal Christian faith
The uniform for the Seniors 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 Seniors 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 Seniors Section
