What is The Bridge Teen Center?

The Bridge Teen Center is an independent nonprofit teen community center that is not affiliated with a school, church, or municipality. Our free programs have been recognized at the local, state, and national level as being among the most innovative in the country. 

From free culinary demonstrations and music lessons to homework support and community service projects, our holistic afterschool programs and weekend entertainment events are designed around the interests and needs of teens in the suburbs. 

Located in Orland Park, Illinois, The Bridge has served thousands of teens and families from 128 different Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana communities since 2010. We work hard at providing our students with a place not just to BE, but to BECOME.
