There’s plenty to be thankful for in life, especially when it comes to friends. Join us as we celebrate Friendsgiving here at The Bridge Teen Center. Come hang out in the Art Studio and make a pie banner. Test your Thanksgiving trivia with our team Jeopardy competition. Let your voice be heard and vote for your favorite Thanksgiving food. Show your thankfulness by, sign our “thankful” banner, and say what you’re most thankful for this year. Friendsgiving is not complete without food, so don’t forget to gather around with your friends and enjoy a sample from Smashburger!

Advance sign-up is NOT required. Drop-in anytime Friday night during open hours 7:30 - 10:30pm. Open to teens in 7th - 12th grade with a Bridge student membership. Not a member? Apply for a FREE student membership right here.

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.
