A community center in the heart of Austin on the west side of Chicago.

The Peace Corner Youth Center provides a safe haven from gang violence and drug activity, an after school program for children, job training and placement for young adults, and GED classes. We are dedicated to empowering people to take care of themselves and to contribute to the neighborhood.
