Who We Are


  • Boys’ Brigade seeks to mentor boys to prepare them for the challenge of life.

We are a team of dedicated individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of boys across New Zealand and are committed to seeing lives enriched by supporting boys and young men to reach their full potential. We see the need for strong male role models mentoring these boys, as well as a need for fun, adventure, respect and self-discipline. There’s something for every young boy whether it’s camping or kayaking, first aid or touch rugby. 

Members develop skills, build confidence, make friends, take responsibility and are encouraged to make a real difference in their communities - sharing the values that make us who we are. Our work with boys and young men is made possible thanks to our volunteer leaders who give of their time so generously.
