A community youth center in the heart of Austin, on Chicago’s west side

The Peace Corner Youth Center is a safe haven for youth. Through the support of positive adult mentors, kids and teens are provided with after school programming which focuses on improving academic performance, life skills development, structured recreation, and service learning. Parents and guardians are challenged to engage in and support their child’s progress. It is our goal to develop critical thinkers who are empowered to self-advocate, seek positive alternatives to negative activities, and contribute to community change.

Our Programs

I love the Peace Corner because I never had a place to come when I was a little kid, and it’s helping me now become a better man.
