Our Youth Programs serve the children of all our programs at UAII. Eligibility is generally determined through enrollment in a federally recognized tribe, or proof of parent’s (or grandparent’s) tribal enrollment.

Once we receive your registration with the American Indian Clubhouse, we will forward your child’s information to the American Indian Health Project, which will make them eligible for all UAII services, including summer camp. Other acceptable forms include a letter from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, or from various American Indian descendancy roles.

We also have funding for programming that doesn’t require tribal enrollment, and we try to serve as many American Indian youth and families as possible. If you have a question about eligibility, please contact us directly.

The American Indian Clubhouse

Youth programming has been a dedicated part of UAII since its founding in 1974, and the American Indian Clubhouse was formed as an independent program in 1990. As a youth-informed program, we collect feedback from youth participants, parents, and our Advisory Board on the types of programs we provide.

We draw on all the strengths of UAII and partner with all our departments, and many community services providers, to offer after-school programming and weekend activities. All our programs are provided free of charge for our registered participants.

We serve all of Los Angeles County, working with the largest American Indian population in the country. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of or American Indian youth and would like to volunteer with our program, please contact the Director of Youth Services, Ramon Enriquez, at (213)202-3970, ext 7193, or by email at
