BLinK and L.E.A.D. Summer Location information:


 This summer, Kids & Company/BLinK/L.E.A.D. will offer our older youth programming for 5th - 8th grade in the downtown Hopkins area. Both North and West Junior High Schools and Hopkins High School will be under construction this summer. This gives Community Education the opportunity to program out of Katherine Curren Elementary School and the Hopkins Pavilion. Katherine Curren is a Hopkins School District building that has been leased to a charter school, Ubah Medical Academy, for the past 10 years. Ubah Medical Academy has a small summer program and we will be sharing space in the building this summer with that program.

Our staff takes great pride in our older youth summer programming. We will continue to offer students amazing experiences through trips, site programming, pool options, service projects and daily activities. Staff are also excited for youth to have a playground and Central Park to further expand programming as well as the many opportunities for nearby walking trips. If you have any questions about our L.E.A.D. program please contact Jaime.
