About Us


Mission Statement

The Niles Teen Center is a department of the Village of Niles. It seeks to develop, connect, and invest in local 6th-12th grade teens by providing a welcoming, structured, and safe environment. 

Programming is designed to encourage student creativity, identity, and personal development. Offerings include life skill workshops, homework assistance, and service opportunities.

We hope that students discover positive friendships and establish mentoring relationships with staff and volunteers that will support them throughout their adolescent years and beyond.
