The Thompson Local News


There’s over $200,000 in funding for youth programs coming to Thompson from the Provincial Government.

 

Thompson MLA Kelly Bindle made the announcement at the Boys and Girls club of Thompson yesterday morning that the Youth Build Program will be getting $200,000, while the club itself will get $12,000.

 

Bindle said that the money is in line with the Province's "Look North" initiative, in that it helps to engage youth in the community, through learning, to be involved in the local economy. He added that the government is committed to help youth in the north succeed.

Regina DaSilva-Gibbons, the executive director of the Boys and Girls Club in Thompson, said that the move by the government has left her at a loss for words. She said that while $200,000 is a lot of money, it's worth it for the youth whose lives are changed for the better.

 

Gibbons added that the club wouldn’t be able to do the work they do without the staff, who as she said, were tough enough to make sure the youth are ready for the real world, but soft enough that they’ll come to them with any questions. 

 

The Youth Build program has 363 young people in the past 15 years.
