Youth HQ looks forward to working with BGC Clearwater County and the community of Rocky Mountain House to expand program and service delivery to children and families within the Hwy 11 David Thompson corridor.
BGC Red Deer & District now operates 15 community-based locations throughout Red Deer, Red Deer County and Clearwater County.
Rob Lewis, Executive Director talks about the expansion.
“Youth HQ is excited at the opportunity to support BGC (Boys and Girls Club) programming in Rocky Mountain House! BGC Clearwater County is working with Youth HQ over the next several months to unify the two organizations. This means that BGC Clearwater County will work to dissolve their stand-alone charitable status and have invited Youth HQ to assume BGC programming in Rocky Mountain House. This opens many new opportunities for service delivery in the west-central region of Alberta. It also provides a natural extension of Youth HQ programming in the area, helping Youth HQ to more readily provide access to Camp Alexo (located part way between Rocky Mountain House and Nordegg) to children and youth in the west-central region. While this means significant change for both organizations, in the end, youth and children along the Highway 11 corridor will have more opportunity to access and enjoy BGC programming in the future.”
