Boys’ Brigade

Home / Cause / Boys’ Brigade

The form is not published.

The object of the Boys’ Brigade:

“The Advancement of Christ’s Kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tend towards a true Christian manliness”.


The Boys’ Brigade is in need of donations to fund;

  1. Purchase of equipment and educational materials
  2. Transportation to National and other functions
  3. Assist under-privileged children with uniforms, etc
  4. Community projects
  5. Purchase and maintenance of marching drums

The Boys’ Brigade is funded in most parts by the Church and the company’s “Captains” – name given to the head of a Boys’ Brigade Company. The Boys’ Brigade due to its para-military nature participates in all Government National Activities i.e. Independence Day, Remembrance Day, State Funerals etc. and supports many of the churches and other organizations with its marching band. The cost of transporting etc. to these activities are funded by the Captains and other senior members of the Company. We presently do not have a home or camp site for the Boys’ Brigade. This is an urgent and necessary requirement as it allows for the imparting of the teachings of ownership, national pride, responsibility and the camping skills that are associated with Brigade life. The Boys’ Brigade Antigua seeks the support of the Government and the office of the Governor General in our bid to secure a headquarters/office which will serve as the home of the Regional Body and the local Boys’ Brigade

Kind of Donations:

The Brigade requires the following support:

  1. Financial support
  2. A parcel of land to build our camp site
  3. A headquarter/office and staff to manage the affairs of the Local and Regional body.
