Each year we board the Santa Train as elves to help out Santa. We play games, read a story, and hand out activities to the kids on board.

History of LTWC
LTWC began as a true grass roots effort by teens after founding the Flag Rally and volunteering their time in various other community service events over a period of a few years. In March of 2005, the teens in Lisle came together under the Lisle Community Character Alliance (formerly known as the Lisle Character Counts Coalition) to officially be recognized as Lisle Teens with Character.
Over the past twelve years, LTWC has experienced unprecedented success. The membership has grown to include 90 members, who have contributed over 30,000 hours of service to the Lisle community and raised over $112,000 for various charities since the inception of the group. LTWC has been recognized in the media locally, statewide and even nationally. The success of LTWC is due in large part to the tremendous support from the Partners for Parks Foundation. Teens and adults working together in the Lisle community are making a difference. Lisle Teens with Character is an affiliate group of the Lisle Park District.
