The Object of the Boys’ Brigade is: “The advancement of Christ’s kingdom among members and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.”
Beginning in 1883, a young Sunday School Teacher, Sir William Alexander Smith had his idea: ‘Drill and Discipline‘ when he found that the older boys were bored and restless. He compared this with the time he spent on a Saturday afternoon, as a Lieutenant with the volunteers, when he had no difficulty in making a hundred men obey his every word of command on the nearby drill ground.
Boys’ Brigade in Malaysia started in 1946 and has since been recognised by the Ministry of Education and is also an affiliate member of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in Malaysia. Now in its 140th year, BB Members acquire skills and knowledge in various aspects of Leadership, Survival, National and Global Awareness and Community Spiritedness.
