About Us

Our vision is to see all children and youth discover and achieve their dreams and grow up to be healthy, successful and active participants in society.

Young people need a safe and structured environment; a place where people work together to create a greater sense of social harmony, a place that keeps them positively motivated about themselves, their community and their future, a place where their minds and bodies can maintain health and happiness. The BGC Thompson creates and offers this environment.

The BGC Thompson is a community, grass roots organization, linked with the national movement of BGC Canada, offering recreational, nutritional, educational and vocational programming to children and youth at risk. The majority of youth accessing programming are high need youth from marginalized families within the community and surrounding areas. The organization is governed by a board of directors drawn from the local representation including, but not limited to the educational, social, justice, health and economic sectors.

I like The BGC Thompson because:
