VolunteerOur program is powered by our amazing volunteers, mostly students, who give up a few hours of their time 1-4 days a week to help make a difference in this community and in the lives of kids. We are always in need of help at the Peace Program and would love to have you be a part of our team!

Sponsor a ChildGive the gift of learning to local kids! Sponsoring a child provides a student with education supplies, fresh fruits and vegetables, engaging children’s books, homework assistance, reading support, mentorship and a healthy and safe learning environment.
Who We Are
Located at #20 in Devlin Place, our after school program runs Monday-Thursday 3:30-5:30 during the school year and 12:00-2:00 during the summer. We offer homework assistance, reading intervention, healthy snacks, and engaging activities to children ages 5-14, through community sponsorships.
Since 2010, we have been blessed to serve nearly 350 different kids in our city, meeting over 100 of them in this last year, and we look forward to touching many more little lives in the years to come!
