Mayor Tim Keller Releases 2021 Summer Youth Programs Catalog

Families can find all current and upcoming City youth programs in one place to help keep kids safe and engaged.

April 18, 2021

Today, Mayor Tim Keller and One Albuquerque: Youth Connect released the Summer Youth Programs Catalog -- a listing of all City of Albuquerque current and upcoming program information from all departments for Summer 2021. Families can find a wide variety of opportunities to help kids stay safe and engaged. 

The catalog provides registration dates and information, program dates, locations, and COVID-safety guidelines parents need to sign their kids up for a wide variety of affordable programs in the region. 

“Even through the pandemic, we found ways to adapt and keep our youth programs going because we know how important high-quality, affordable child development is to our frontline working families. Now that more parents are returning to the workplace, we are expanding their reach to meet the increasing need," said Mayor Tim Keller. 

It is now easier for families to navigate the many City youth programs and events offered across departments and throughout the year. Mayor Tim Keller brought the many departments that offer out-of-school time youth events and programs together under Youth Connect. Now families can find out about all of the youth events and programs in one place – whether it’s a day at Camp Fearless with the Albuquerque Police Department or all summer long at a Community Center.

As restrictions change, Youth Connect will continue to adapt and modify its programs with the goal to continue to offer as many opportunities as possible for families who need them. The number of attendees and modification of programs and events are determined by safety guidelines outlined by the New Mexico Department of Health.

The catalog lists programs for youth ages newborn through high school. Registration is open now for some programs and will continue to open through May. Registration for City youth programs and events is available at yc.cabq.gov. You can access the full report at cabq.gov/youthconnect.
