Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Serdang, is the largest biennial jamboree event of the Beyond Fair 2018 from 18 to 24 August 2018. The event organizes over 2,300 members throughout Malaysia and abroad including Indonesia, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. This jamboree event is the largest in the history of Boy's Brigade or BB.
The emphasis of holistic classroom outcomes makes the BB uniformed unit continue to excel since it was introduced in the country 72 years ago.
Malaysia's Boy's Brigade Deputy Vice-President, Nicholas Yeap said the core of volunteerism applied to each of its members helped shape a balanced individual identity.
"BB focuses on comprehensive skills including interpersonal skills, volunteerism, communication skills, sports skills, leadership and various skills that cannot be found in the classroom," he said at a recent UPM program.
The BB was introduced in the country around 1946 with the establishment of the first 'Company' in Penang, then in Kuala Lumpur in 1954.
Until now, BB has trained more than 100,000 teens aged between 5 to 17 years and has over 650 volunteers through 120 groups across the country.
Events held at UPM are Bands Competition, Marching Competition, Singing Competition, Explorace events and more.
