Outcomes & Results
At Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, we begin each year thinking about what we want our Club members and their families to be able to achieve with our support. All year long, we strive to promote regular attendance at the Clubs and sustained participation in targeted programs for the kids who need us most, in order to help them overcome obstacles in their life and meet their goals. Along the way, we collect and analyze data that helps us understand how we can tailor our programs and services to have the maximum impact on the communities we serve.
