Free after-school programming is available in-person or online at Indio Teen Center for those in grades 8-12

INDIO – In response to Riverside County’s changing public health tiers, and the resumption of some in-person learning for students in middle and high school, the Indio Teen Center at 81-678 Avenue 46 is now open to youth in grades 8 to 12.

Indio Teen Center Reopens for Hybrid Programming

Free activities

The Teen Center provided free, quality programming for out-of-school time throughout the pandemic virtually, and is excited to resume those activities in person on Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.  The April calendar includes tennis, giant chess, tie-dye, and creating sloth garden planters!  Programming will take place outdoors.

Teens continuing on distance learning can continue to participate in virtual programming, with contactless program supply delivery on Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m.

The center will have a limited capacity at 50 teens at one time, and is open for those who are attending school in-person. Schools have divided students in hybrid learning into cohorts, and the Teen Center will follow that schedule. Therefore, on the days those students attend school in-person, they can attend the Teen Center.

All participants must have both an ITC Registration Form and JPIA waiver completed.  Both can be found online at the Teen Center’s Website, or can be picked up at the Teen Center.  In addition to both forms, school enrollment will be verified via current school ID and screenshot/printed copy of their StudentVUE portal that shows their name, grade and assigned cohort.

Additional COVID safety precautions and a monthly Teen Center calendar can be found on the here.   Follow the ‘indioteencenter’ on Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat for programming information.  For questions/concerns please contact the Indio Teen Center at (760) 541-4400.
