Hdimg One

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

The Peace Corner Youth Center serves as a safe haven for youth. Through the support of positive adult mentors, youth are provided with after school programming which focuses on: improving academic performance, life skills development, structured recreation, and service learning. Parents and guardians are also 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

When I need help with my homework after school I can come here, and there are sports and activities.
