By the time they reach 6th grade, middle class kids have likely spent 6,000 more hours learning than kids born into poverty. Through engaging academic and career programs, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver is filling the learning gap faced by many of the kids and families we serve.
These are just some of the key programs Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver offers in the Academics & Careers Impact Area:
