For the past three years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver has been the lucky recipient of ViewHouse’s philanthropic partnership. The three ViewHouse locations in the Denver metro area (Ballpark, Centennial and Littleton) have worked together to strengthen their incredible support, which benefits our Club kids all over Denver.
The ViewHouse’s commitment to Healthy Lifestyles makes them a perfect partner for BGCMD. Chef Jose Guerrero (featured on top Food Network shows and former Club member) has an affinity for the work of Boys & Girls Clubs, which inspired him to create and run his own Farm to Table Garden program at the Owen Club. His dedication inspires others and we are thrilled to see his efforts go from seed to harvest this year.
ViewHouse’s amazing staff has shown their dedication to our mission by giving their personal time, from judging in the Youth of the Year competition to volunteering in the Clubs, including the annual Thanksgiving feast they prepare and share with our members and families. Thank you for all of the support ViewHouse!
Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs’ highest honor, celebrating our most inspiring members. Youth of the Year recognizes outstanding leadership, academic excellence, and a commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
The honor is the end result of a year-long program that starts at the Club level. Each Club holds their own competition and names their own Youth of the Year in up to three categories: 10-13 year olds, Juniors (14-15), and Seniors (16-18). The winners advance to the Metro Denver competition. Senior winners can then advance to the state, regional, and national competition. Continue reading
