The Peace Corner Youth Center

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve Austin community youth on the west side of Chicago. We want to enable all young people to better themselves including those released from the detention centers, those in trouble, and those simply wanting a safe place to play with no distinction of faith, race, or background. The Peace Corner wants to help make the Austin neighborhood of Chicago a safer, better, productive, and nurturing place for young people to flourish.
