Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board launches after-school activity finder
The Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board’s Minneapolis Afterschool Network launched an online citywide resource for finding after-school and summer activities for children and young adults ages 5-21. What’s Up 612! lists things to do outside of the classroom in Minneapolis, bringing together after-school opportunities offered by the City, Hennepin County, Minneapolis Public Schools, the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board, and community organizations. Users will have the opportunity to offer suggestions, connect with fellow users via social media, and participate in community activities and events.
Community program providers are encouraged to submit program content to keep the program finder up to date with new and exciting opportunities. If your department has an activity to add to the list, contact the Minneapolis Afterschool Network’s Afterschool Project Director Fatima Muhammad at [email protected].
The Minneapolis Afterschool Network is the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board’s citywide system created to ensure all Minneapolis young people have access to comprehensive, high-quality after-school programs that support positive youth development, educational achievement, and career and community readiness. The board developed this system not only for connecting parents, youth, educators and youth workers with out-of-school activities, but also for addressing and shrinking the opportunity gap.
