    Community Education plays a critical role in helping young children grow from children to teens. Youth-focused programs and services provide more than just education or entertainment - they contribute to a safe and healthy community by providing young people with engaging activities that help them grow into productive citizens. 

    Activities and enrichment: The Community Schools program provides fun activities and learning opportunities for children year-round; after-school, in the evenings and on the weekends; to enhance your child's academic and social experiences while out of school.

    Athletics: Elementary and middle school athletic programs are supervised and led by certified coaches, licensed teachers or knowledgeable staff who emphasize skill development, participation, teamwork, and respect for others. Community Education also offers camps and clinics to help students gear up for the athletic programs offered at Anoka-Hennepin high schools.

    Swimming: Swimming and water safety is a skill that your children will use for life! Anoka-Hennepin Community Education offers swimming lessons to support youth with a wide range of skill levels.

    Youth Service: Anoka-Hennepin Community Education coordinates youth service activities, meaningful leadership and service opportunities, trips and projects to support the community.

    Anoka Children's Theatre: The Anoka Children's Theatre is dedicated to nurturing each child's creative and expressive potential as they learn about the art of theatre, providing Anoka-Hennepin students in grades four through eight an opportunity to be part of a live theatrical experience where they rehearse, learn and perform to the delight of themselves as well as their audiences.
