June 5, 2015 (MINNEAPOLIS) Today as classes wind down for the school year, Mayor Hodges wants families to know about the extensive summer programming being offered city-wide to Minneapolis’ youth and youngest community members, many free of cost.
 
Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board (YCB) launched a new website, whatsup612.com where residents can find a multitude of activities for youth ages five to 21. Online, residents can sign up for everything from daily camps offered by the city, to out-of-school-education programs, to free summer meals.
 
“Minneapolis has made a huge effort to ensure that our youth and youngest residents can have a happy, healthy, and productive summer,” said Mayor Betsy Hodges. “Every child, teenager, and young adult can find something to spark their interest and passions, and now it’s all online at their fingertips.  Thanks to YCB and its partners for putting together a great summer for kids across the City.”

The programming is a joint collaboration between YCB, Minneapolis Public Schools, Minneapolis Community Education, Hennepin County Library, Youth Are Here!, Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, Minneapolis Police Department, and the Health Department.
 
If you have programming to offer youth ages five-21 you can submit activities to Christina Garner at Christina.Garner@minneapolismn.gov.
