Youth Group Affiliation
Branch affiliation enables members to work together with youth organisations on fundraising projects and promotes mutual community support.
Any youth organisation, whether it's uniformed or not, can become affiliated with a Legion branch. In fact, it can become affiliated to as many branches as it wishes to.

Youth bands and majorette troupes
The Legion has a number of youth bands and majorette troupes in England and Wales. Some adult bands also accept youth members and teach them to play a musical instrument.
You must be a Youth Member of the Legion once you are established in the band. You can join some bands or majorette troupes below the age of 12 but you will be expected to become a Youth Member when you reach 12.
Youth Standard Bearer
Youth members can train to be a Youth Standard Bearer and take part in the National Youth Standard Bearer Competition.
The winner of the competition holds the position of The Royal British Legion National Youth Standard Bearer and attends events such as the Festival of Remembrance held at the Royal Albert Hall each year.
