Why Volunteer?

Seeking new challenges in life? Do you wish to develop your skills, leadership qualities and contribute towards your community? Looking to have an impact on someone else’s life?

At The Boys’ Brigade, children and young people are actively involved in a range of personal development related adventures as well as learning experiences. They are also given ample opportunities to get involved in international work, community action projects, and camps. From the tender age of 5, till they become young people of 18 years, they are encouraged to take on the world as outstanding citizens with strong moral values. We are always on the lookout for individuals to become volunteers, helping to run the activities that play such an important role in the lives of our young members. By becoming a volunteer, you give yourself the opportunity to become a part of a life changing process where you will be working shoulder to shoulder with these motivated young people and taking part in exciting activities.

Enhancing young peoples lives through the help of Christ. Exploring, creativity and a whole bunch of laughs each week; is the reason I volunteer  – Emma, 1st Southwick

I volunteer because seeing the impact Boys’ Brigade has on young people’s lives is astounding . – John, 26th Brighton
