What’s Up 612! is an online resource of things to do in Minneapolis. The program finder is a citywide resource where youth, parents, educators, youth workers and persons who know young people can find affordable quality afterschool and summer activities for children and young adults ages 5-21.

What’s Up 612! brings together afterschool opportunities offered by the City of Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minneapolis Public Schools, Minneapolis Parks & Recreation Board and community organizations.

The website is just one component of the YCB Minneapolis Afterschool Network. This tool is not only designed to connect parents, youth, educators and youth workers to citywide activities, but it's also dedicated to addressing and shrinking the opportunity gap.

We welcome nonprofit organizations serving the Minneapolis area to list low-to-no cost quality afterschool opportunities here! To have a youth program, community event and/or youth resource featured in What’s Up 612!, please follow the format listed below and submit content here.
