PUEBLO, CO (May 22, 2018) For more than two decades, CSU-Pueblo and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County have partnered to provide a variety of educational and recreational opportunities for members and CSU-Pueblo students as well as co-sponsor the Youth of the Year scholarship program for the last eight years. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County currently has three sites –the Sangre de Cristo housing complex, Risley International Academy of Innovation, and McHarg Community Center at Avondale and recently the two organizations announced an expansion of their partnership with the opening of a Summer Only Site on the CSU-Pueblo campus.

President Mottet said, “CSU-Pueblo is excited about this partnership. We believe it coincides well with the university’s intent to serve our local community and do our part to strengthen the university-going culture, so that one day every home in Pueblo will have a college or university diploma on the wall”.

The summer program at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County is nine weeks of interactive field trips, engaging physical activities, and academic enrichment that fosters leadership skills and builds self-confidence in a safe, positive environment. Our expert youth development professionals strive to provide activities that challenge members, that give members new experiences, and that allow members to let loose and have fun. Our goal is to keep summer camp engaging for your kids and affordable for you. “Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County is proud of our unique partnership with the University. This opportunity for our community youth is only one of five clubs on college campuses in the country” says Angela Giron, Boys & Girls Clubs President/CEO.
