“As a former Club member, I can relate to a lot of our youth and their situations. To be able to pass on the opportunity for kids to achieve their greatest potential is very important to me.”
Program Manager, Robert M. Shopneck Boys & Girls Club
I have been a part of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver for more than a decade and I’ve loved every moment of it. I am a former Club member, worked at our Johnson Club for many years, spent time supporting the entire organization as an office administrator, and now have returned to my Club roots at Shopneck Boys & Girls Club. Throughout my time at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, I’ve been able to take on roles that fit my skillset and life stage.
As a former member, I can relate to a lot of our youth and their situations. To be able to pass on the opportunity for kids to achieve their greatest potential is very important to me. My favorite thing about working in the Club is the constant excitement. There is never a dull moment working with kids. I love teaching new skills and seeing their faces light up with joy when they are having fun.
One of my proudest moments at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver was working at Johnson Club at the State Game Room Tournament competition. We won the Table Tennis Championship five years in a row. In the 2019 tournament, all 15 members from Johnson came home with a trophy. It was one of my greatest accomplishments.
Throughout my time at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, I’ve always been guided by one of our core values: respect. I was always taught to respect my elders, respect others and most of all to respect myself. I believe if this value is mastered you can become humble and successful at anything you put your mind to. I’m honored to have cultivated that value throughout my years here – both as a Club member, and now as a part of our staff.
While attending college, I started working at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver as a part-time staff member at J. Churchill Owen Boys & Girls Club. I helped out in the gym and coached football, basketball, and baseball. This showed me that building connections with our members was crucial for their growth. I continued to learn from Club leadership how to run great programs and maintain a clean and safe environment for our members. When I became an Athletic Director at Johnson, I took what I learned from my mentors and applied it to my sports programs and the Club. My time in this role helped me develop my relationship skills with members and schools.
From there, I became the Assistant/Teen Director at Shopneck Boys & Girls Club, and a lot of growth happened for me in my career there. As the first Assistant/Teen Director at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, there were no job guidelines or CODs. I strengthened my relationship skills with the community, partners, employees, and teens during this time.
Next, I became the Teen Director at Owen. I was excited to return to the Club I grew up in and give back to my community. My team and I invested in teen programs and had many epic teen nights. At Owen, I learned that it is essential for teens to have their own space and programming and for their voices to be heard.
At Cope, I have held many different job titles. I started as the Athletic Specialist, where I helped improve a successful athletics program. Then I moved into the role of Assistant Director, where I helped with all of our events, recruitment, conversations with parents, behavioral issues, staff, payroll, and inspections. I learned a lot from our staff and members.
Now, as the Club Director at Cope, I love leading my team and watching them grow. I learn something new every day from my team and the members. I try to make work exciting and fun. So far, my biggest challenges are staff retention and ensuring my team is happy. After a year as the Director, I feel that at Cope, we’ve built a strong community of staff, members, and families that feel supported when they are struggling, can celebrate each other, and continue to grow.
My journey at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver started during the COVID-19 pandemic as the Athletic Specialist at Boston Boys & Girls Club. I quickly learned about adapting to changes in Clubs to promote high-quality programming. I learned to navigate some of the communication barriers, school and Club relationships, and staffing shortages. Upon returning to Boston through COVID, I was fortunate to transition into the Boston Program Manager Role.
In the Program Manager role, I worked to build stronger relationships with the school and our families to make a significant impact at the Club. I partnered with some stakeholders within the Aurora community to help further support our Club and families. Additionally, I developed my leadership style, being open and supportive to help staff set high goals and attain them. I worked hard to ensure that Boston was a safe, encouraging, and supportive environment where members could thrive.
This dedication then helped me obtain the Club Director role. Today I work to make every day count at Club, tapping into staff's passions that feed into our members while helping members discover all the world has to offer. I am excited to continue working with the Boston team and members to create a bigger and more exciting Club for years to come!
Working at Boston Boys & Girls Club every day has shown me that Club is the heartbeat of the community, opening doors for their youth that they wouldn't otherwise have. I am proud to be a part of this organization and these members' lives as the Club has become Home.
