Our Mission

  • The PEACE program mission is to develop youth with active and creative minds as well as gain a better sense of consideration and kindness for others. We believe in the full growth of each individual and foster a caring environment; we concentration on the whole growth of the individual - physically, ethically, academically as well as social and emotional.



  • In collaboration with District 209, the PEACE Program provides academic support by monitoring grades, attendance, and student behavior on site at Proviso PEACE Center. In addition, students will receive social-emotional support through one-to-one mentoring by a PEACE Student Advocate. To promote student success, students enrolled in the PEACE program will set academic goals, be held accountable for their schoolwork, and participate in mentoring/enrichment activities. Last, the PEACE staff communicates with school staff and parents to develop positive relationships.
