About Our Organization
The Bridge Teen Center is an innovative grassroots nonprofit community center that was designed around the interests and needs of teens in the suburbs. We are located in Orland Park and have served over 2,600 teens and their families from over 96 different communities!
Our mission is to provide free programs during afterschool and unsupervised hours where students can develop mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually in a safe environment.
The Bridge Teen Center exists to serve students between the ages of 12-18 (7th-12th grades), and also provides monthly programming to help parents navigate through the teenage years.
We are located at 15555 S. 71st Court in Orland Park. The Bridge is supported by generous donors and committed volunteers from the community. Our facility was built almost entirely through donated materials and volunteer labor.
The Bridge is open for students Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 2- 6 pm and on Friday and Saturday nights from 7:30- 10:30 pm. On most Friday and Saturday nights, live music is offered in 'The Garage', The Bridge Teen Center's official music venue.
