CCIG Team Visits Boys and Girls Club

August 1, 2016

The CCIG team spent an afternoon last week volunteering at the Denver Broncos Boys and Girls Club in the city’s Northeast section.

CCIG’s Morgan Mahoney shot hoops with a few of the kids at the Denver Broncos Boys and Girls Club.

Our visit to the club gave us a glimpse into just how important the Boys and Girls Club can be to so many youngsters in the community.

The club, one of nine in Denver, serves low-income youth and helps them succeed. On average, 2,000 Denver-area children age 6-18 stop in to a club on any given day.

A few facts we learned:

> Club members consistently outperform their peers in terms of school achievement, healthy choices and behaviors and civic engagement.

> While one in five children in the U.S. don’t graduate on time, 90 percent of club “alumni” earn their high school diploma or its equivalent.

> The Boys & Girls Club model has received the highest possible effectiveness rating from the National Dropout Prevention Center.

> Membership is just $2 per year.

Our afternoon, in short, was an eye-opening experience and a great opportunity for the CCIG team to give back to our community.
