Local Groups

BB local groups (called Companies) meet weekly across Australia usually based in a church. Every group is different and has its own “flavour” depending on the interest of the leaders, the locality and the community of which they are a part. Each group wears a uniform as a sign of belonging to the group.

The networking of groups also gives opportunity to provide young people with adventures, events, friendships and experiences only possible with the combined resources the wider organisation.
