What is Company Section 

and Seniors?

The Company Section is for young people aged 11 to 15 years of age and Seniors for young men aged between 15 to 18.

 

What do they do?

Those in the Company Section take part in the Discover programme, that enables you to . . .

  • Take part in a a fun, balanced and challenging programme
  • Be recognised for your effort and achievement
  • Build trusting relationships

It's all about learning new skills, making your own decisions and having fun. BB provides a safe environment to explore new possibilities and achieve personal goals while making friends and having adventures. Within Discover there are 3 programme zones as follows:

  • Community
  • Recreation
  • Skills

And it's up to each young person to work out which opportunities are relevant for them, whether it's improving football skills, podcasting or recycling.

 

Every young person should also expect...

  • To experience new challenges

  • To be listened to and have a say

  • To be respected and valued

  • To have fun

  • To have the opportunity to develop a personal Christian faith

In addition to the above Seniors take part in the Challenge Plus programme, which is made up of Projects and Challenges, these include taster sessions that act as an introduction to a topic and are then followed by a longer project that is designed and led by the young people.

 

Challenges are focussed on activities that could be completed by the group or as an individual ranging from 'Climb a Munro' to 'Review a local takeaway'.

There are also opportunities to work towards...

  • The Duke of Edinburgh' Award

  • Young Volunteer Awards

  • Queen's Badge
