For over 140 years, we’ve seen thousands of young Australians grow into successful, capable adults.
“The Brigade was life-changing for me.”
Sasha was five years old when she joined The Girls & Boys Brigade’s After School Program. Sasha’s dad was terminally ill and her mum was forced to raise and provide for Sasha alone. Sasha’s mum wanted a normal routine for her daughter.
“A huge part of my childhood memories are the adventures I had with The Girls & Boys Brigade,” says Sasha.

“We were saved here”
As a single parent, Chiho was studying nursing full-time as well as caring for her daughter Faith.
“Faith and I were so privileged that she was able to have so many incredible experiences at The Girls & Boys Brigade.”
“They were able to take her to places that I just wasn’t able to. She got to grow up like other kids and have the same experiences and I am so grateful for that,” Chiho said.
