The Alive Center’s Teen-Led, Teen-DrivenTM Drop-in programs provide unique programming for local students to come together to learn, create, and socialize in a welcoming, safe, and supervised environment. During the critical hours after school and over summer vacation, our program provides teens and tweens with free tutoring, mentoring, classes and workshops on a variety of topics such as leadership, career development, healthy cooking, art and music, drug prevention and awareness, anti-bullying and cyber safety information, community service projects, STEM, media, and more.  The majority of these programs are Teen-Led, Teen-DrivenTM (TLTD) to make them most relevant for the younger teens and tweens while giving the older teens a place to lead and innovate.

We are honored and thrilled to be one of the first teen centers in the nation that is serving both junior high and high schoolers, privileged and at-risk, through a peer mentoring model. High schoolers lead and create all of our teen programs. It is a powerful peer model of teens helping teens where they all become empowered in the process. Our teen leads are learning early in life that they can make a difference along with learning valuable business and life skills. The younger teens and tweens they are serving are lifted up through our TLTD programs and will grow up to be the future leaders of Alive. Our program also keeps teens off the streets and out of trouble while helping them to learn, lead, create, innovate, build resiliency skills, and discover who they are and find that critical purpose in life... What makes them come alive!
