Youth Enrichment Programs
The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board recreation programs for December are dedicated to youth enrichment programs which offer opportunities for growth and exploration through engaging, creative activities. They help young people develop discipline and skills for problem-solving and decision-making, and promote their sense of achievement and self-esteem.
Youth enrichment programs take place at various recreation centers this month, with some outdoor options. All have pandemic precautions in place; face coverings and social distancing are required for all participants.
