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 afterschool and summer activities for children and young adults ages 5-21..

This resource was created as a way to provide information about MPS initiatives,

programs and meetings that may interest you. On occasion community specific events and opportunities will be highlighted here, as well. Information will be shared here on the many ways to be involved at your child’s school, such as Site Council and Volunteering, in addition to district level parent meetings.  We do our best to stay current and provide relevant information, however, if there are topics you would like to see covered, please feel free to let me know. Jocelyn Beard, Community Liaison – jocelyn.beard@mpls.k12.mn.us.
