At Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, the safety of our kids, staff, and community members is our number one priority.

Safe Buildings, Staff, and Procedures 

Our buildings remain locked at all times and entry is controlled by front desk staff who check kids and visitors in and out. Anyone entering our legacy Clubs does so through a secure, double-vestibule entrance. At school-based sites, we partner with school administration to provide secure, controlled entry. 

Staff are trained to quickly and calmly initiate lockdown procedures if the need arises. We consistently evaluate our procedures to ensure alignment with industry best practices. 

All Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver staff members are mandatory reporters and specifically trained on how to respond in instances of suspected child abuse or neglect. Those who work or volunteer in our Clubs must pass extensive background checks and undergo regular safety training.  

Safe Sports 

All Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver staff are first aid and CPR certified and AED trained. All athletic staff are trained in concussion recognition, with an annual refresher. 

Our sports, along with all our programs, are also emotionally safe for all players. We allow all kids to participate in practice and games, regardless of skill level. 

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)  

SEL is foundational to all programs. Staff incorporate SEL concepts to create safe spaces for all kids who participate in Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver programming.  

Our dedicated mental health team supports staff and members, facilitating individual and group sessions and making referrals where necessary. Learn more about mental health support.
