One of GBM’s values is YES! GB celebrates achievements and successes in many ways. One of the ways in which members are affirmed is by encouraging achievements such as the Duke of Edinburgh's Award and GB's own Queen's Award.

At Girls’ Brigade, we want our girls and young women to build their confidence and self-esteem by making friends and having fun.

We offer the opportunity through our group activities to gain valuable skills to help them into adulthood.

By running awards such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and our own Queen’s Award we give our girls and young women the opportunity to gain key skills and attributes for work and life.

These awards encourage team-working, teach resilience, experience problem-solving, enhance communication and give young women the chance to have something really exciting to write about in their personal statements for uni, their CV and job applications.

Young people can also be nominated through Girls’ Brigade to receive special awards, e.g. saving a life or achievement through adversity. GB leaders wishing to nominate a young person can download the Special Award Application Form here.
