The Boys and Girls Club of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe celebrated the end of a successful Summer Club by throwing a End of Summer BBQ on Friday, August 20 in Ute Park. The Club provided fun, educational and safe programing for over 80 youth during the summer. Family friends and staff were all in attendance at this year’s event. Tribal Council also attended and provided the club members with words of wisdom and thanked BGC staff for all their hard work. This summer’s programing was the first in-person club to happen since the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020. The summer club also worked with the youth Employment Program (YEP) to train two youth workers during the summer. This club is making memorable and exciting experiences for youth in Indian Country.
