The Uniform Youth Work Hub provides support to six uniform organisations with headquarters or regional Headquarters in Northern Ireland to work with the Education Authority on shared goals.
The organisations are:
- Girlguiding Ulster
- Scouts NI
- Girls’ Brigade
- Boys’ Brigade Northern Ireland District
- Catholic Guides of Ireland
- Scout Foundation NI (Scouting Ireland)
All six organisations work with young people aged 4-25 years old and are open to all children and young people.
BOYS’ BRIGADE NI
The Boys’ Brigade Northern Ireland (often referred to as BB) is a Christian Youth and Children’s Ministry organisation for young people aged 4 to 18 years. A varied programme of activities is provided such as Bible teaching, football, rugby, volleyball, craft, drama, outdoor pursuits and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
GIRLS’ BRIGADE NI
Girls’ Brigade Northern Ireland (GBNI) is a fun youth organisation catering for girls aged 3 – 18 years providing a readymade youth and children’s ministry programme for churches/missions in Northern Ireland.
CATHOLIC GUIDES OF IRELAND
The Catholic Guides of Ireland Northern Region is a volunteer led organisation which caters for girls and young women from age 5. Our aim is to promote and foster the spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual, social and physical development of our members.
Scout Foundation NI (SFNI) supports the development of children and young people by providing support to Scouting Ireland Groups in the Northern Province (this includes all of the Northern Ireland and Donegal).
Guiding provides over 10,000 girls and young women with opportunities to reach their potential and take an active and responsible role in the world around them. Girlguiding’s distinctive stimulating and enjoyable programme of activities are delivered by over 2,000 trained volunteer leaders across Northern Ireland.
Scouts prepare young people with skills for life – helping them speak up, take the lead and play their part. Each week we give almost half a million people aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.
