Peace Community Center lives out its mission through youth development and education focused programming. We focus on building relationships that support student growth in elementary school; becoming active learners and advocates for themselves in middle school; and ultimately successful students in high school, graduating to college and sustainable careers in STEAM and beyond. Our goal is for students to finish high school and obtain a post-secondary degree that fits their career goals. Our students are be well-positioned to obtain careers with the skills, experience and values that actively contribute to more just and vibrant communities, especially in the Hilltop of Tacoma.
