Hey Students! Do you need community service? We've got you covered.

The Bridge Thrift Store provides 7th-12th grade students with opportunities for community service hours and to gain job and leadership experience in a fun and creative environment. There are two ways to get involved:

  1. Schedule general COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS where you'll help sort merchandise and organize inventory. This is a year-round, ongoing opportunity.
  2. Join our THRIFTASTIC JOB READINESS TRAINING PROGRAM and develop skills that will build your future. This program requires a committed schedule.

Interested students may sign-up here and we will contact you with additional details. Or, you can email volunteer@thebridgeteencenter.org or call 708.532.0500 extension 108 for more information. 


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.
