LEAF Community Nights

LEAF Nights are collaborative community nights that provide education for MNPS families each week. Adults will attend community workshops and ESL classes, while their children receive other literacy and STEM enrichment opportunities, FREE of charge. Dinner and childcare for children age 3+ is provided.

Las Noches Comunitarias de LEAF brindarán educación para las familias de MNPS cada semena. Los adultos asistirán a talleres comunitarios y clases de inglés mientras sus hijos reciben GRATUITAMENTE otras oportunidades de superación académica. Se proporcionarán cena y cuidado de niños de 3 años de edad y mayores.

LEAF Night programming is fueled by community partners!

The LEAF Sustain Team seeks community partners to provide a diverse array of youth and parent workshops and student enrichment programming at one or both sites. In the past, these workshops have included topics such as nutrition, health insurance, financial literacy, knowing your rights as immigrants, legal assistance, and more. Dinner is also provided through committed community partners.
