Safety is a top priority for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Colorado.

Safe Buildings, Staff and Procedures

Our buildings are constantly monitored to ensure security. Our front desk staff check kids, visitors and staff in and out. At our school-based site, 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 Northwest Colorado 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.
