About Alive Center
Alive Center is one of the first teen centers in the nation serving both junior high and high schoolers, privileged and at-risk, through a peer mentoring model. High schoolers lead and create all of their teen programs. Alive Center is a powerful peer model of teens helping teens where they all become empowered in the process.
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 TLTD programs and will grow up to be the future leaders of Alive. Their 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!
