Our Programs

Great Futures Start Here

What sets the Boys & Girls Clubs apart from many other before and after school options are our program offerings.  Staff members engage with youth through a variety of positive youth development programs that not only reinforce and expand upon what they learn in school, but helps them discover potential in other developmental areas and help guide them in realizing that potential.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the High Rockies' (BGCHR) programs are proven to keep children on the right track in multiple developmental aspects, and we strive to make them fun as well as instructional.  The programs BGCHR offers its members are provided in a supportive and engaging environment.  We provide a rewarding club experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors, with all members on track to graduate high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.  Our strategy is designed to build self-esteem and allow our youth to live full, satisfying, and productive lives.
