Volunteering in The Boys' Brigade
At BB children and young people get involved in a huge range of exciting activities and
adventures, from first aid, abseiling, circus skills, and much more. There's also opportunities
to get involved in international work, community action projects, camping and trying out new sports.
As a volunteer you can take an active part in some of these fun and exciting activities. Or you can
simply help organise activities with the children and young people.
