The Alive Center Teen Advisory Board Application
The Alive Center is a nonprofit organization that provides a welcoming, safe place for Naperville teens to gather and have fun in a values-driven environment. Teen opinions, passions, and needs are essential to Alive, and the Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is the foundation and heart of everything we do with our teen programs. Our TAB is a working board and leadership program; they organize into committees to see programs and events through from conception to fruition. The staff at Alive supports the TAB in their work with mentoring and guidance, but the teens are doing the majority of the work to see that their passions and ideas are realized. Our TAB makes a real impact on the organization and on the community through their work and its members obtain real life leadership skills.

We are looking for a diverse group of young leaders that will accurately reflect the interests and values of their peers, friends, and teammates. Members of the Teen Advisory Board should be driven and passionate about a value-focused environment for teens. The Alive Center is all about teens building relationships so we are looking for individuals with strong compassion for their peers and their community.
