Our Mission

To provide the community with a welcoming place to create, play, learn and connect with what makes them come alive.

 

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.
