Coming in 2024
The new Teen Center, otherwise known as "The CLUB," will serve as a dedicated safe space for hundreds of teens, providing a place to connect with adults, elevate their voices, and provide opportunities and experiences that reflect their passions.
Meet Jesse Granados who attends the Monfort Clubhouse and has been a club member since he was 7 years old. Jesse is the oldest of four and is a Freshman at Northridge High School. Jesse is an outstanding leader. As an AVID student, he spends time volunteering at his school and in his community. Jesse is passionate about many things in his life. Business has always been a huge inspiration for Jesse; his goal is to attend the University of Northern Colorado to get a BA in Business. Jesse is a true inspiration and leader at the Boys & Girls Clubs as well. His leadership started through Torch Club, serving as a mentor for the younger members, assisting them with homework, and helping staff with programming. Jesse has served as a Junior Staff and exemplified hard work and commitment. Thanks to this campaign, Jesse will soon have a larger, more accessible facility to attend Club. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Weld County will work in tandem with Greeley-Evans School District 6 to provide programming that will count towards graduation, which will help Jesse stay on track for his future.
At Boys & Girls Clubs of Weld County, we are committed to preparing teens for a successful future. We’re building The Teen Center to be a unique experience that empowers teens to find their voice and accomplish their goals. Why? Weld County’s population of people under 18 is expected to double between 2017 and 2050. Additionally, the suicide rate has reached some of its highest levels on record for Colorado’s teens since 2015. What’s more is that 1 in 5 Weld County high school students drop out before graduation. The time is now to focus our energy on supporting those who need us most – Our Teens. Our Vision is to ensure success is within reach for every young person who enters our doors, with all teens on track to graduate high school, involved in the community, prepared for college and careers as strong leaders.

Formally known as The Warnoco Roller Rink, this building has been a staple in the Greeley community since 1921. Now, youth ages 13-18 from all over Weld County can access services and support in an environment created with their best interest in mind.
