THE Senior Section
The Senior Section is for young people aged between 15 and 19.
We have a programme designed to show that young people are capable of achieving the best, without having to be tarred with the brush of been yobs. We challenge young people physically, mentally and spiritually so that they may grow into men and women who are responsible, capable and happy.
Our Seniors programme includes camps, challenges, music, drill, drama, sport, nights out, games and much more besides. The Seniors at MWBB take an active leadership role amongst our younger members and are independent in their decision making.
In 1956, the BB was a founding partner of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, with the scheme itself very strongly connected to our awards programme. For more information, please visit the D of E page. Just another way in which we push young people to achieve more.
The Challenge Plus award scheme is split up into 3 zones:
RECREATION AND LEISURE - LIFE SKILLS - COMMUNITY
The Challenge Plus requires each young person to take part in detailed Projects and Challenge activities which they themselves choose and work on.
There are three levels of awards which require a number of points to achieve.
Bronze (10 points)
Silver (20 points)
Gold (30 points)
These all lead on to the two highest awards in the BB.
And the highest award in the Boys' Brigade, the Queen's Badge.
Fifteen people in MWBB
have earned to right to be called a Queensman
Seniors can also earn promotions and become young leaders in the Company:
