Youth

The staff at the Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake works to provide a safe and fun environment for our American Indian and Alaska Native youth with summer and afterschool programs. These activities include educational, social, behavioral health and health components that build intelligent and culturally aware children – while simply allowing native youth time to play together.  These activities, which change from year to year according to need and available funding, include:

  • Annual Conferences
  • Cultural Arts and Crafts
  • Community Gardening
  • Homework labs
  • Leadership Training
  • Life Skills Instruction
  • Powwow Drum & Dance Classes
  • Service Projects
  • Substance Abuse Prevention

Some programs are held in collaboration with other organizations such as local school districts, community organizations, and state agencies.  Some programs have age restrictions and most require parents to provide documentation of tribal enrollment.
