This summer, we have over 120+ FREE student programs scheduled to take place in June, July and August. Programs range from culinary programs, art programs, music programs, hangout programs and more. All students must sign-up in advance for afterschool programs. Online sign-up for programs begins Wednesday, May 25th at 2:00pm on our website. Some programs may fill up quickly, however, we always encourage students to still sign-up for the waiting list as cancellations do occur and we work to contact those on the waitlist to fill the program to capacity.


Students are invited to join us every other Friday night from 7:30-10:30pm throughout the summer. Enjoy fun games, live music or karaoke, themed nights, open art studios, and FREE food samples from your favorite local restaurants and shops. Doors open at 7:30pm. Friday Nights are FREE with a Bridge student membership. Want to bring a friend? Have them apply for a FREE student membership in advance! Dropping off your student? Check out this video.


Do you love thrifting? Do you love discounts? Bridge students and families are invited to attend our Thrift Store Family Night on Friday, June 17th. During this exclusive event, students and their families can take 20% off their entire purchase. Plus, you’ll be the first to see our store as items will be stocked in preparation for Saturday. This is an exclusive private event. Students must have their Bridge ID to enter.


For students wanting to gain work experience in a thriving retail environment we encourage you to apply to our Thrifastic Job Readiness Program. Available for students in 7th-12th grade, our customized Thriftastic Job Readiness program will help students build their resume and gain valuable skills for their future.

Every year we help hundreds of local students earn community service at The Bridge Thrift Store. Not only will students show their heart of service but their service helps fund the free students programs and events at The Bridge Teen Center. To learn more and schedule service visit our Student Community Service page.


Student membership is FREE to teens to students who will be in 7th - 12th grade in the fall. Not a member? Apply for a FREE membership by completing a Student Membership Application. After your application has been submitted, we encourage new students and their families to schedule a 30 minute family tour.
