HIBBING BRANCH Initiative
Hey Hibbing area, let’s start a Boys & Girls Club! A Boys & Girls Club would provide a safe space, caring mentors, and quality programs for all kids, open to those in Hibbing and beyond.
Only months after forming an exploratory task force, a group of community members, passionate about its young people, has achieved major milestones towards its goal of opening a Boys & Girls Club of Hibbing in the fall of 2022.
On November 11 a formal agreement was signed whereby Hibbing’s Boys & Girls Club is positioned to be a site under the Northland Chapter of the Boys & Girls Club of America, joining already established sites in Duluth, Grand Rapids / Greenway, and Superior. Hibbing Superintendent of Schools, Rick Aldrich, stated, “The Hibbing Public Schools are excited to work together with our local committee to establish a Boys & Girls Club within our community.”
Superintendent Aldrich went on to say, “We all recognize the growing need to support our students after the last bell rings at the end of the school day.”
The Hibbing School District issued a letter of commitment indicating it is prepared to provide, at no cost, classroom and space to the Boys & Girls Club within its schools and, also at no cost, provide Hibbing students transportation to the after-school location(s) on regularly scheduled school days.
