The Boys’ Brigade Northern Regional Trust has investments which earn an income, and uses it to help The Boys’ Brigade in New Zealand to provide leadership and programmes for Boys.

Most of the Trust’s income goes to BBNZ to fund one Development Officer salary and expenses. The Development Officer helps Churches to recruit, train and encourage leaders for local BB units. He also organises big events of fun activities on a regional basis.

Each year the Trust subsidises the costs of about six young leaders from the Northern Region who attend the National Leadership Development Courses.

Start-up grants of $200 are made to every new BB unit to help them get going.
