Seniors Programme

SeniorS programme


The Seniors Programme has the largest membership numbers amongst the four programmes in the BB. Through the proficiency awards scheme, Boys acquire skills and knowledge in the areas of Leadership, Personal Mastery, Global Awareness and Community Spiritedness. In addition, brigade-level competitions, leadership development course and community service projects such as BB Share-a-Gift and BB CARES offers opportunities for exposure and skills development. Our Boys also represent the Brigade in national-level events such as the National Day Parade.
