The Boys’ Brigade
Could you accept the challenge to be a youth leader in the 21st Century ?
Young people today need guidance more than ever before, yet there are fewer community youth leaders now than ever before.
If you are aged between 18 and 69 why not accept the challenge and train to become a youth leader. Even if after the training you decide that this is not for you, the experience is very uplifting and some employers offer benefits to trained youth leaders.
The Boys’ Brigade can facilitate your training and provide supervision and support during your training period.
Grants are available to cover all or part of the costs.
Most Training is provided by the Boys’ Brigade either at the Headquarters - Feldon Lodge in Hemel Hempstead or at one of the local sites. First Aid is provided by either the British Red Cross or St. John’s Ambulance
Food Hygiene is provided to Council registration standards
