Our Mission: To provide the community
with a welcoming place to create, play, learn and connect
with what makes them come alive.
Our adult programming keeps the space busy when the teens are not using it, and helps to fund our teen programs.
Our classes & Workshops have been created to help individuals connect with their passions and increase overall well-being. The classes are small in size, designed to facilitate active learning, in a collaborative and relaxed environment. Classes meet every week. Workshops will range from 1 ½ to 8 hours depending on the topic.
Choose from a variety of programs including:
Healthy / Eco Living

What is The Alive Center
In January of 2015 Alive Center merged with NaperBridge to create a better place for teens and adults to learn, grow, and connect.
The Alive Center serves teens and adults that are interested in connecting with what makes them come alive, increasing their health and well-being and having a stronger sense of community and belonging – with a goal being to lead an inspired, vibrant and fulfilled life.
The Alive Center is a nonprofit offering workshops, classes, events, private or group coaching and NaperBridge Teen Programs – all designed to foster physical and emotional well-being and inspire personal growth.
