FDF is part of the worldwide network "Global Fellowship of Christian Youth"

This umbrella has regional networks.

FDF is an active part of European Fellowship.

FDF is part of a worldwide network, Global Fellowship. This is a collection of 70 organisations in countries all around the world. 

Holger Tornøe visited The Boys' Brigade in Scotland before founding FDF in 1902. He was inspired by the discipline but also interpreted the parades and marching as role play and games. 

All the youth organisations attending are Boys' and or Girls' Brigades. FDF and the brigades have a shared history with the founder of FDF visiting the Boys' Brigade in Scotland and basing the start of FDF on that youth work model.

The Brigades have a heavy use of discipline and drill (marching) to attract young people to their youth organisation, and it's extremely popular.

The first Boys' Brigade meeting was held on 4th Otctober 1883. This is celebrated in other organsaitions with "Founders Day". 

On Saturday 28th October at 11:00am there is an online gathering of people around the world from Boys' Brigades to celebrate this and meet new friends in this global youth organisation.
