Does your daughter want to rock...with rocks? Then sign her up for our Tech Girls Rock event happening on March 17! Boys & Girls Clubs of America, in partnership with CA Technologies, are hosting Tech Girls Rock workshop at our Loveland location. This free event is an initiative aimed to encourage girls to discover an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) focused educational opportunities and careers.
This event will explore different careers in the tech field, IT trends and topics, give tech challenges and also feature hands-on technology experiments.
The U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that women make up 58 percent of the U.S. workforce, but only 25 percent of the computing workforce. Since this initiative kicked off, Tech Girls Rock workshops have reached more than 1,500 tween and teen girls across the country. Help us reach even more by signing up your tween or teen today!
Participants will also get complimentary breakfast, lunch and a snack by registering!
The holidays may be over, but you can still give the gift of learning by registering your tween or teen girl today. And if you register by March 8th you'll be entered to win a FREE laptop!
Hope to see you there!

Everyone loves breakfast, right? It tastes good. It fills you up. And, there is usually something sweet involved. Here at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County, we love breakfast for a whole other reason: celebrating the amazing youth we serve for one awesome event.
Our Youth of the Year (YOY) breakfast is our biggest event of the year. It not only brings together our supporters, sponsors, volunteers, staff members and donors, it also gives all of those people (and more) a chance to connect with some of the youth we serve.
If you find yourself at the breakfast, you'll be entertained with some of our Loveland Unit STEP team members, get a chance to connect with the youth as they tell you their goals and hopes for the future, and you'll also be able to see all of the youths of the month from 2016 we will be honoring from each Club U
During this event, you'll also get to find out WHO the 2017 Larimer County Youth of the Year is. This individual has worked hard to win over her Club Unit as well as all of the other Club Units (Wellington, Loveland, West Loveland, Fort Collins) in Larimer County. Her story is incredible, but her hopes, goals and dreams for the future are even more astounding. We can't wait to have everyone hear her story on February 9th!
And while the Club Staff and Program Support have been a bit hectic the last few weeks in preparation, we are so excited to honor these youth! The Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County opens doors to great futures, and we can't see all the doors these youth will open.
As a mini preview, meet our Senior Youths of the Year (Beth, Stella, Helen) and Junior Youths of the Year (Alex, Earl, Ayanna, Gabbie) pictured below:
See you all in a week!
