ABOUT

Boys & Girls Clubs of Weld County opened its doors in Greeley, CO in 1964, serving a few young men out of an old tire shop.  At the time it provided a safe place for young men to go to and learn some basic skills such as how to change the oil in a car and clean a carburetor. In 56 years, we have grown into a $2.4 million organization with seven Clubhouses throughout Weld  County. We proudly  serve over 3,000 youth annually and approximately 550 each day.

BGCWC operates two stand-alone Clubhouses and a Teen Center in the City of Greeley. Additionally, BGCWC operates one school-based site in Greeley, currently at Madison Elementary. BGCWC also operates two school-based sites in the rural communities of Galeton, and Fort Lupton, and has a dedicated Clubhouse space at the Milliken Athletic Complex in partnership with Thompson Rivers Parks & Recreation District. BGCWC’s staff and Board of Directors strive to make Weld  County a strong and vibrant region for our youth.
