Denver, CO - Denver City Councilman at-Large Doug Linkhart announced the release of
the 2007 Youth Link today, a summer activities guide. The guide, sponsored by the
Councilman and Jeanne Kaplan, Denver School Board member, lists hundreds of
opportunities for metro-area youth.

“I want to make sure that Denver’s kids know about all the options available to them so
they can take advantage of the opportunities for growth, or just for safe fun. We’ve made
available an extensive list that is sure to have something for everyone,” said Councilman
Linkhart. “Our kids are our future; these programs offer an investment in that future.”

The bilingual guide lists more than 125 locations and organizations throughout the city.
The activities, some of which are even free, range from summer sports such as tennis,
gymnastics or river rafting; to jobs in community-based service programs; from GED
classes and language classes; to programs in art appreciation or improvisation. The guide
is conveniently organized into four categories: education, employment, recreation and
social activities; and features a map indicating the location of each.

The guide has been distributed to Denver public and private schools, and can also be
found at Denver Public Libraries, Denver Recreation Centers, on Councilman Linkhart’s
website at or can be acquired by contacting Councilman Linkhart’s
office at 720-865-8000.
