In this week’s episode, Jim Piper Jr. interviews Erin Porteous, CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs in Metro Denver, a non-profit organization that serves around 10,000 kids annually in Denver and around 4 million kids across the United States. Erin shares how the organization started in Denver as a place for boys to be productive and get off the street during the early 1960s when there was a high amount of gang violence.

Today, the Boys and Girls Clubs offer a wide range of programs for kids of all ages, from homework help to sports programming to college preparation. Also, they serve kids from all types of backgrounds, including those who come from vulnerable situations. Furthermore, Erin reveals the organization’s budget and how it helps children meet their basic needs and establish relationships.

In short, the episode offers a fascinating insight into the history and work of Boys and Girls Clubs Denver, what’s it like to run a multi-million non-profit, her skill set as a Christian leader, and being a role model to her two young daughters. So, don’t miss out on the valuable insights and entertaining conversations in this podcast.
