This chapter describes the salient features of youth organizations in Great Britain during the 1800s. It attempts to show the motivation and workings of the voluntary youth movement prior to the introduction of collectivist measures after 1900. It explains why the adolescent male labour reformers were eager to incorporate several aspects of the movement's practice and ideology within those policies. There are three main criticisms on youth organizations. These are their failure to reach the mass of boys, their limited educational value and their ability to provide nothing but amusement.
