Our Company Section is for boys and girls aged 11 – 15 years.
We meet on a Monday evening between 7.30pm and 9.15pm.
What we do in Company!
This age group has its own programme called ‘Discover’ based on three areas; community, recreation and skills.
Young people get the chance to develop existing skills and learn new ones, through a fun, balanced and challenging programme of activities. Young people are encouraged to have a say and help shape their own programme.
They can get involved in anything from helping others in their local community to playing sports, trying out adventure activities or being creative through dance or art – there’s something for everyone!
There are also opportunities to go away on camps and residentials, which are often the highlights in the annual programme.
Interaction with other companies increases through social meetings, competitions and the opportunity to participate in the annual camp.
Throughout their time in this age group young people can gain badges and recognition for their participation in the programme, with a number of awards within the organisation including Young Volunteer Award and the President’s Badge.
Many young people in the Company section age group are interested in getting involved with helping with the younger members.
Training and support is provided for those young people who wish to volunteer in this way.
