Get ready to sleigh the holiday season by shopping during special hours at The Bridge Thrift Store (Cash, Cards, and Apple Pay will be accepted). That’s right, we are opening our secret passageway to the thrift store just for you! Explore aisles filled with hidden gems, from vintage fashion finds to quirky holiday decor or that ugly sweater you need that will give your celebrations that extra pizzazz. After the shopping is done, wrap your presents in the Art Studio to get a head start on the holiday preparation. Don’t forget to grab your food sample from Farmhouse Academy on this jolliest of Friday Nights. See you there!

Advance sign-up is NOT required. Drop-in anytime Friday night during open hours 7:30 - 10:30 pm. Open to teens in 7th - 12th grade and be at least 12, but less than 19 years of age with a Bridge student membership. Not a member? Apply for a FREE student membership right here.

We strongly recommend all parents/drivers watch our short video highlighting our Friday Night Parking Lot Best Practices to help keep everyone safe.

No outside food or beverages permitted. All students must be dropped off and picked up promptly.

Fridays this semester are sponsored by Moraine Valley Community College.

Important Attendance Policy:

Out of respect to our volunteers, please be sure you can attend the programs you sign up for. Confirmation calls or text messages are made 48-72 hours prior to every program. If you do not respond to our confirmation call within 24 hours of the program, a student on the waiting list will fill your spot. If a student is a "no show" for 2 or more programs, they will be automatically placed on the waiting list for other programs they have signed up for during that semester. 48 hours notice is required for all cancellations.
