Boys Brigade

The Boys’ Brigade – 19th Singapore Company

The Boys’ Brigade places emphasis on helping the boys to develop and grow in character, promoting physical fitness and developing their leadership potential, and training them to become loyal and responsible citizens. 

Weekly character development lessons are conducted to build a positive mindset and instill positive values in the Boys to nurture responsible youths in The Boys’ Brigade. Through these lessons, the boys are equipped with means and ways to deal with their emotions and make well-informed decisions. These analytical skills enable the Boys to strive towards exhibiting excellent behaviour. 

Our Boys undergo a variety of physical activities that prepare them to face both mental and physical challenges. This allows our Boys to develop their physique and build endurance and resilience. The Boys also attend leadership development courses to hone their leadership skills. Through these courses, all the boys are equipped with leadership skills that will help them to excel both in life and work as they learn the importance of good leadership and the crucial role of being team players. 

Service to the community is an important component in The Boys’ Brigade. Our Boys are taught their roles and responsibilities to the community through two projects at a national level: The BB Share-a-gift and the BB Cares. Through these projects, our Boys learn that excellence is displayed through their attitude and willingness in coming forth to do their part for the community to which they belong. This realisation results in a steady growth of competent and responsible youths who are passionate about serving their country and the community. 

In year 2015, The Boys’ Brigade in Singapore commemorated her 85th Anniversary in conjunction with the nation’s SG50 initiatives. Our Boys were involved in the trooping of colours via a complex series of drills, as part of this milestone event.

Year 2017 was a year of double happiness for the Boys’ Brigade 19th Singapore Company (BB19) in Yishun Town Secondary School. In the first quarter of the year, BB19 was the only company in a secondary school to be awarded the prestigious Niche Award for Family Involvement and Excellence. In addition to these achievements, a total of five BB Boys were awarded the prestigious Founders’ Men Award in 2017, which represents the highest accolade that a BB Boy may obtain during his secondary school years.
