The Peace Corner Summer Program is open to neighborhood youth all day for six weeks during the summer. Children are provided with healthy snacks and lunch and enjoy athletics, academic enrichment, community service projects, field trips, guest speakers and more.
The Peace Corner is a safe haven and an alternative to gangs and drugs. The Peace Corner also provides tutoring, athletics, academic enrichment, and opportunities to connect with other youth in a positive way.
Before the school children arrive, The Peace Corner is available to help develop the career skills of young adults. We offer assistance in computer literacy, job preparation seminars and referrals to educational resources.
1,462 hours of community service were given back to the Peace Corner in 2013 by volunteers from various colleges and professional organizations.
