About the Peace Corner

Meet our staff

The Peace Corner employs staff members to assist in monitoring our youth programming and maintenance of the center. Our internships and volunteers are also an essential resource for realizing our mission.

Fr. Maurizio Binaghi


It is here in Chicago’s West Side in 2001 that Fr. Maurizio Binaghi founded The Peace Corner as a youth center for at risk youth. With a background in education and social justice, under his guidance The Peace Corner has established itself as one of the leading youth agencies in the Austin community, providing a great variety of services and programs to underprivileged youth.

Our Programs

I would definitely recommend the job readiness program for anyone else that’s looking for a change or who’s really serious about moving forward with their life in a positive manner.
