Recruitment: Open To... Campaign

From Autumn 2021 term (Sept-Dec) we are returning to our usual termly programmes for all age groups.

Whilst we are returning to our termly programmes from Autumn 2021, we recognise that the pandemic will continue to impact how some of our groups operate as we go into the 2021-22 session. We are therefore continuing to make our alternative programming resource available. 

You can find all our programme resources on the Programme Hub at boys-brigade.org.uk/programme/ including:

  • Face-to-Face – All the new Activity Cards, Themed Programme Activity Cards and Programmes Planners for Autumn 2021 are now available. In addition to this a library of 300+ activities designed for face-to-face activities (which also provide guidance for running where social/physical distancing are required) are available for leaders.
  • #BBatHOME– A library of 300+ activities for children and young people to try out at home supported by their parents/carers will continue to be available. Companies are encouraged to signpost and/or send these resources as part of a remote offering. 
  • Virtual Sessions– A library of 300+ activities designed for Virtual Sessions are available for leaders. These include activities for all age groups, across all 6 activity areas and have all been tried and tested as part of Virtual Sessions. a great way to continue to engage with children and young people if you cannot meet face to face for a period of time.

Check out details of how you can join upcoming webinars and workshops as well as watch recordings of other previously run webinars at boys-brigade.org.uk/leaders-workshops/.

4-Week Taster Programmes

As part of our continuing support for leaders, we are excited to launch a new 4-week taster programme which supports both Virtual Sessions and #BBatHOME programmes. The taster programme is designed to provide a fully resourced and structured programme over the course of a 4-week period, helping to provide you with everything you need to run an engaging, balanced and successful programme of activities for children and young people. The programme contains a mix of new and existing activities for all age groups along with ready-to-use PowerPoint slides, videos and guidance for leaders.
