The Thompson Local News

The Boys and Girls Club here in Thompson is set to re-open this afternoon following a brief hiatus.


Regina DaSilva-Gibbons, the executive director of the local club, spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that even though their doors were closed they did not slow down.


DaSilva-Gibbons said that most of her management team left around the same time, which left the programs with not enough oversight.


The time was spent hiring new staff and developing new programs, as well as training. The executive director said that a large part of the training was to make sure that all employees, especially the newer ones, understood what the Boys and Girls Club is. She said that she “needs (her) employees to realize that Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada are the largest youth-serving organization in Canada”, and that it’s not just a Thompson thing.


The club will resume their after-school program today from 3:30pm until 8:30pm.


Make sure to tune in to 102.9 CHTM this afternoon at 12:40pm and 5:10pm as DaSilva-Gibbons joins us for a Thompson Today.
