Every business can reap huge rewards by connecting employees to opportunities to engage with and improve their community. Company-sponsored volunteer activities are welcomed throughout the year at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. From skills-based opportunities to facilities maintenance to kickball with the kids, volunteer projects offer great team building engagements for your employees.
Corporate Group Projects are perfect for companies, organizations and schools that would like to participate in a special activity at one of our Clubs. Not only do group projects provide an immediate benefit to the young people served by Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, but they can also be a great way to promote team-building, boost morale, or “cross-train” using new skills and experiences. Most importantly, they’re just plain fun!
Whatever your goals, our staff can help design and execute a customized project to align your company’s interests with the needs at our Clubs. Examples include ”Scrub-a-Club” clean up events, hosting special events for our Club members such as a Holiday Party, Arts & Crafts Day, or Sports & Fitness Field Day, leading a program in your group’s area of expertise such as music, dancing, photography, science, athletics, etc., planting a garden, and much more. Please allow at least three weeks notice between contacting us and the scheduled date of your project so that we can find the best Club match for you.
We’ll work with you to pick a Club location that’s convenient for your group. However, since many of our groups come from downtown Denver, we’re always happy when groups can travel to make sure that every Club gets visited by awesome volunteers.
Please know that the Clubs are not typically open on the weekends. However, we occasionally have special programs that happen on the weekends that may require volunteer assistance. If you want to arrange an event that would take place on a weekend, please set up a time to discuss your options with us.
The costs of each project vary with the scope of each activity. Just joining us for some fun in the Clubs using the space and materials we have available is the no-cost option for groups. If you and your team have resources available to support the project, and want to provide supplies for a special activity, we are happy to help you coordinate the activity. Sometimes, groups will collect supplies in a “drive” leading up to the event to create buy-in and excitement before the day of. If you want to provide snacks or meals for your employees or the kids, your company will be expected to cover those costs.
