An adjunct of the Humanist Vanguard, charged with providing support to the Nationalist & Humanist Party as well as aid to the civil power wherever appropriate.

Compared with the financial clout of the Honourable Company and the institutional power of the Raspur Pact, the Humanist movement's main strength was its cadre of activists. In accordance with the strategic directive of 1689 each national-level Humanist party was to organise from the affiliated youth movement a division sized formation available to serve as a support to the party and the state in certain contingent circumstances. These contingent circumstances varied from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. In Nouvelle Alexandrie for instance a Vanguard Division was expected to provide community organisers, event stewards, and humanitarian workers, whilst in the more unsettled circumstances of Benacia their party uniform buttoned up over a considerably larger number of duties.

As far as national circumstances would permit, a Vanguard Division ought to comprise of thirty-thousand youth activists led by salaried officials drawn from the national leadership cadres of the N&H.
