November is "Empowering Teens Month"

In our changed post-pandemic world, teenagers need safe and encouraging places not just to BE, but also to BECOME. The Bridge Teen Center and The Bridge Thrift Store are committed to engaging, connecting and empowering young people on a daily basis. Through our FREE programs, events, and job readiness programming, we are challenging young people to discover new things, navigate life, and explore who they were created to be.

You and your group can support LOCAL teens and families during Empowering Teens Month in any of these 3 ways:


2 hours of volunteer time from a group of 6 can generate enough support for 3 students to have unlimited access to The Bridge for 6 months! Service projects will be held on select dates in November for individuals, families (no children under 10), businesses and groups. Volunteers receive t-shirts while supplies last. For more information about volunteering, email [email protected] or call 708.532.0500 to discuss available dates and the process for signing up.


Volunteer Application (required for adults NOT PART OF GROUP)

Student Membership Application (required for 7th-12th graders who aren't yet Bridge members)

*No application is required for students age 10 through 6th grade.

Instructions & Fact Sheet


We rely on your donations of gently used clothing, furniture and home goods to raise support for The Bridge Teen Center’s free programs. If you have larger furniture to donate, contact us to schedule a pick-up by emailing [email protected]. Regular donations are accepted during store hours at the donation trailer behind The Bridge Thrift Store. .


We process hundreds of bags of donated goods each month, which means our store stock is changing daily. Stop in for some incredible finds in November! The best part is, your bargain-hunting will support the holistic programs at The Bridge Teen Center that empower LOCAL teens on a daily basis.
