Our Mission

Our mission statement was written by our teens and is the voice and heart which drives the center:


Our Mission is to be a teen-led, teen-driven center focused on empowering the youth of today to become the impassioned, resilient leaders of tomorrow.

Food Services

As a teen center, we purchase a lot of pizza, sandwiches, healthy snacks, and juice for our teen events and after-school drop-in hours.

Please consider donating some healthy food or providing at-cost products for our teens to enjoy.

Our lounge showcases an artistic donation wall – visible from the front door – to honor our largest corporate and personal donors. The donor picks the design of the piece of wood to be displayed on their behalf, e.g. name, logo, and design. Guaranteed to be displayed for 5 years. Fill out the form and mail it with your check to 500 W. 5thAve, Naperville IL 60563.
