Need to do some last minute Christmas shopping? Walk through the Thrift Store in search of that perfect gift. It’s sure to satisfy your festive desires. Hoping to decorate your room for the holidays? We’ve got you covered. The best part is, all your purchases support the free programs you enjoy at The Bridge Teen Center. This is one of the rare times you’ll need cash (if you want to shop), so come prepared (no checks or credit cards accepted). Once you’re done shopping, head to our Art Studio to make a card or gift tag and put the final touches on a gift you would like to give this year. 

If you’re already finished with your holiday shopping, no worries! Put your skills to the test and enjoy some friendly competition in our foosball tournament. See once and for all who the “Foosball Master” will be. Will you win a fun trophy? 

Last but certainly not least, Nothing Bundt cakes will be supplying food samples for the night. Yum!

To attend Friday Nights, students will have to sign up in advance. This is a temporary requirement based on COVID-19 safety guidelines. All students must be dropped off and picked up promptly. Masks are required. 

With new restrictions and our desire to respect others, we ask you to PLEASE communicate / remove sign-up if you CANNOT attend a Friday night at least 72 hours in advance. We strive to have as many students as possible within our limited capacity due to COVID-19, EACH spot is very important. Thank you for your cooperation.

Open to teens in 7th - 12th grade with a Bridge student membership. Not a member? Apply for a FREE student membership right here

No outside food or beverages permitted. 

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.
