The mission of the Territorial Youth Band is to encourage young Salvationist musicians in musical and spiritual development through fellowship and performance opportunities led by the Territorial Music and Gospel Arts Department. 



The Canada and Bermuda Territorial Youth Band, conducted by Territorial Secretary for Music and Gospel Arts Craig Lewis, is being formed to participate in the 2019 Rose Bowl Parade in California. This nine day trip will include an international music camp with several other Territorial Youth Bands, marching in the Rose Bowl Parade, a visit to Disneyland and many other events.
