Teen Program Gets an Overhaul

RC Teenworks debuted fall 2017.

The Teen Recreation Activity Club (TRAC) is now RC TeenWorks, a comprehensive youth development program for tweens and teens in grades 5-12. RC TeenWorks builds character and leadership skills through recreation programs, workshops, volunteer opportunities, and internships throughout the year. Along with familiar TRAC favorites like Teen Summer Camp and Babysitters Workshops, RC TeenWorks offers an Afterschool Activities Club and Explorers Program that offer a variety of weekly classes and recreational activities designed with teens' interests in mind.

Teen Program Gets an Overhaul

Put your passion for helping your community to work in the monthly community servicebased Volunteer Coalition. Members have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of events and programs, like the annual 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular and the Founder's Day Community Parade.

For teens committed and interested in developing work skills and learning from a mentorship, sign up for the yearlong Internship Program. Interns work alongside City employees from many different departments, gaining not only work place skills, but also insights into the inner workings of local government. Your experience will give you the self-confidence and training that will help you succeed outside of school.

RC TeenWorks offers a wide variety of seasonal supervised programs, activities, and events. Teens participating in programs and workshops, or visiting during drop-in times, also have access to the Lions West Community Center's Art Studio. Don't miss your opportunity to showcase your talent with creative and unique rotating art projects.

The Community Services Department strives to provide a safe, positive and fun environment for youth in Rancho Cucamonga. RC TeenWorks staff especially take pride in serving as mentors and positive role models.
