Alive is Naperville’s teen center. Centrally located, we provide teens a unique place to connect, discover and come alive! Our mission is to be a Teen-Led, Teen-Driven (TLTD) center focused on empowering the youth of today to become the impassioned, resilient leaders of tomorrow. As a nonprofit organization we offer free drop-in hours after school and over the summer as well as a myriad of programs, classes and events, designed to build confident and resilient teens.
On any given day at Alive one will find teen-led tutoring, mentoring and clubs as well as life skill classes such as unstructured art and dance, nutrition and healthy cooking, STEM, stress management, open music venues, creative writing and just plain fun! We are a place to belong and learn important life skills. We are about new experiences and expanding minds!
Our paid programming and rentals help us to fully utilize the space while allowing our community to support our local teens.
