A name change is happening for the Boys and Girls Clubs of The Battlefords.
It has changed its name to BGC Battlefords. The name change was announced last week and the reason cited is a bid to be more inclusive.
In a news release, the organization states it is changing its name because their clubs
“open their doors to all kids and teens and we believe our brand should reflect that.
“Removing gender from our name modernizes the BGC brand and echoes the inclusive practices we’re known for, without straying too far from our history and brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that we serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.”
Other than the name change, the organization plans to continue the work they have already been doing in the community. The organization has been in the Battlefords for 45 years.
