The Indio Teen Center (ITC) has ramped up its quality after school and out of school-time programming throughout the pandemic by offering both virtual and in person activities heading into summer!
From June 7 to July 15, 2021, the Indio Teen Center will continue the amazing and creative virtual programming that kept teens engaged last summer AND add in-person offerings for teens who still want to get together and socialize.
This hybrid approach will enable any Coachella Valley student in grades 8-12 to take part in free Indio Teen Center activities, regardless of residency, transportation or ability to meet in-person.
Monday through Friday from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m., the Indio Teen Center will offer three in-person activities per day: arts/crafts, culinary arts and sports/recreation. Drip art, pottery using a pottery wheel, glass painting and baking are all favorites. In addition, the Teen Center will resume in-person field trips once a week, including trips to the beach, and college campus tours!
Virtual programming will also be offered two days a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:00 p.m.) to students who prefer to join the ITC from home! City staff will drop off free supplies for any arts and crafts and/or culinary arts activity to those who sign up through Instagram direct messenger. Shrimp ceviche, bacon-wrapped smokies and bruschetta have all been on the menu in the past!
Teens must register for a membership online through the City of Indio website, or by requesting a link via the Teen Center’s social media platforms, Twitter, Snapchat, Tik Tok or Instagram.
The ITC is located at 81-678 Avenue 46, Indio.
