Join Gary Comer Youth Center's Strides For Peace Team

Please join us as we participate in the 2024 Strides For Peace: Race Against Gun Violence to raise money for our organization in support of 3 key initiatives that address violence in our community.

1) Providing employment opportunities for youth & young adults throughout the year that create positive experiences as an alternative to the disparity and crime that exists in our community.

2) Enrichment programs that include mentoring, peace-building, and restorative practices to equip our youth with skills to be the change they want to see.

3) Community and family engagement through programming and special events that create safe spaces in our community.
