In England and Wales, The Girls’ Brigade works with churches and schools to develop tailored outreach groups which enable children and young people to discover life to the full through rewarding, stretching and positive opportunities.
These sustainable local groups are for 4-8s, 7-11s, 10-14s, and 13-18s primarily, but not exclusively, for girls, helping them grow and develop in confidence and skills.We’ve been empowering young people through fun, faith and friendship for 130 years.
Around 6,000 children and young people attend these weekly groups, after school or lunchtime clubs, where they can have fun and take part in a range of activities from craft and games, to camping, cooking or fundraising. We explore life and faith together in a safe and welcoming space for everyone.
GB members can take part in young leader training, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and GB’s International Queen’s Award scheme, outreach events and action to benefit their local community, and attend residentials and youth festivals. We equip young people for life so they can grow in confidence to change their communities.
