Educating Youth and Community through Art & Technology Experiences

About Enrichment

Gold Crown Enrichment provides rich, interest based instruction and mentoring for hundreds of kids ages 10-18 through two main avenues: Daytime art and technology classes and the after school Clubhouse.

Since opening our doors 13 years ago, over 6000 youth have passed through them, drawn to a safe and supportive environment that allows them to express themselves creatively. The goal of our Enrichment Program is to provide a creative, accepting environment that encourages our members to imagine creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively in order to learn continuously! As life-long learners, our staff not only facilitates this approach, they apply these principles daily as they model curiosity, flexibility and perseverance. This approach establishes the culture of our Clubhouse and Daytime program. Our enrichment space is at once an artist studio, inventor’s workshop, design house, hackerspace, music studio, and computer game development lab. With the encouraging support of four full time staff members and volunteer mentors from diverse fields, youth unleash their talents, engage in peer-to-peer learning, and develop a unique voice of their own.In the process they become inspired about learning and about their own futures.

OUR VISION  

Gold Crown Enrichment helps area youth discover their talents, strengths and hope for the future by providing creative opportunities and supportive staff in a safe and exciting environment!

 Building a Strong Foundation  

The Gold Crown Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 1986 by former NBA great Bill Hanzlik and Colorado business leader Ray Baker. The organization operates with a mission “to educate youth and community through sports and enrichment programs”. For nearly 30 years, The Gold Crown Foundation (GCF) has been a powerful advocate and programming provider for Denver area youth. The foundation is proud of its reputation of creatively and consistently meeting community needs. It started when sports were cut from middle schools and Gold Crown worked to fill the void. Today, nearly 21,000 youth play basketball, baseball, volleyball, golf. Shortly after The Foundation built Coca-Cola All Star Park; it became evident that art and technology classes could benefit the surrounding neighborhood.

After a thoughtful needs assessment, and research into proven models, Gold Crown Enrichment applied for licensing to join the Clubhouse Network, founded by The Museum of Science, Boston in collaboration with the MIT Media Laboratory 22 years ago. The Clubhouse model is grounded in research from the fields of education, developmental and social psychology, cognitive science, and youth development. It is the strength of this learning model that sets our program apart from others.
