The Boys’ Brigade and Girls’ Association 

We are really concerned about the adverse effect on our young people from being isolated during the recent pandemic. We are seeking volunteers to help get our young people to living their lives to the full. We are looking for volunteers to help bring new experiences to our Boys and Girls.

Our Anchors and Juniors (Ages 5 to 10) meet on a Monday evening 6:00pm to 7:30pm and our Company and Seniors (Ages 11 to 17) meet on a Friday 6:15pm to 9:00pm. We meet at the Free church in Weston and Volunteers can get involved as much as they feel able to do so. Offer as much time as you can.

As well as offering the magic of working with young people, we are also able to offer volunteers the opportunity to experience adventurous activities using our own equipment with tuition and training given. This is in addition to the usual sharing of skills for things like crafts and the teaching of fair play. We are also able to offer those volunteering with us who are under 25, the opportunity to gain their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, including the very prestigious Gold award. Full leadership training is available to volunteers including online tuition. Volunteers will be required to undertake Safeguarding training and complete a Disclosure Check.

Volunteers will be helping us deliver a range of practical activities such as crafts and life skills to active skills such as team games and table games amongst many other activities. These are all focused around a pre-planned and structured awards framework which is offered centrally from The Brigade. We also offer musical tuition, so we are able to accommodate anyone looking to learn, improve and/ or teach, from an extensive range of instruments.
