In addition to running Sunday school and youth work, three children’s and youth associations have also been formed. The associations are independent, having their own finances and leadership, and wherever BCC is established they have their own local team. Each association is responsible for various national and regional events. The activities club and Brunstad Youth Club receive national operating subsidies from the State, and the local teams receive subsidies from the Free Fund.
Corresponding children’s and youth associations have been established in several countries where BCC has a presence.
