Summer As An OSC + Intern at the Peace Center

My name is Shaquana Beal I’m a youth worker at the peace center. In my first week I learned how to balance family, work and school. On July 3rd we feed 120 people for 2 weeks in a row. On the second week I learned about womanhood, I learned that you have to take care of yourself, have your own house, go to college, have a job, and to respect yourself. I really enjoy the field trips that we have gone on. We also learned how to be responsible, I learned that you can’t blame anybody for what you have to do and that you cant leave your team hanging. I also learned that you have can’t give up on your team and also learned that there's no I in team.

TWE's staff member Michael Tidmore and his fellow coaches have been working closely with our community youth to coach them up so that they will perform well at this important tournament.  "We are more focused on how our youth will conduct themselves and show good sportsmanship at the tournament and not just working on playing basketball", says Michael Tidmore.  Hoops in the Hoods is providing a peaceful setting for our youth, and they are responding in a very positive and productive way by showing up and being involved on a team, cooeprating and working together as a group.

The fight is not over, It has just begun.

The was a rally protesting the closing of Simeon's Auto and electrical shops. This can not take place. The buck stops at the mayors' feet and Ald. Brookins is again asleep at the switch. If we lose these shops the mayor and alderman will pay at the polls.

New charter school for at risk youths

I recently learned that Emmanuel Christian Church has entered into an agreement w/ CPS to open an alternative high school at 83 rd & Damen. No community engagement efforts just trying to slip in without notice. Smh!

  • You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it...

    You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it is a school for youth who are expelled from CPS and CPS approved alternative schools. It is a school that had to have armed security guards. Once we got on CPS and the archdiocese of Chicago they moved, Many of the churches that once had schools are looking for ways to generate revenue from the spaces since the school closed.

    Wow! This is very concerning. I will do just that. Thank you.

Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks at Hamilton Park

Back by citywide demand! Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks returns this summer and brings William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, FREE FOR ALL, to 18 neighborhood parks across Chicago. As in previous years, a specially equipped truck will roll into each park, a stage will unfold, and a company of professional actors will share the delight of Shakespeare with families and neighbors of all ages. In this popular Shakespearean comedy, a quartet of mismatched lovers, a gaggle of hapless actors and mischievous sprites cross paths with the king and queen of the fairies, entangled in their own domestic dispute. Audiences will be transported to a wondrous wood brimming with paramours and possibilities where the inexplicable magic of falling in love—and the marvel of waking up from the sweetest of dreams—is discovered. Director David H. Bell has adapted this Shakespeare favorite into an acrobatic and riotously entertaining version of the play. - See more at:

One Summer Chicago Plus

Hi, my name is Tony Robinson and I'm a mentee in the OSC plus at the Peace Community Center and my mentor is Ms. Chyrisse Dunnorm. She has helped me to learn many life lessons. First, I learned about the importance of balancing work, school, and family to your advantage so you can succeed in life the best way possible. Secondly, I learned what integrity meant and I learned that You can be in integrity by saying u will do something and actually following through with it. Next, I learned what resiliance was and how resiliance is used at all times and that some times you are resiliant without even knowing it. Then, I learned what it meant to be a man and I found out my self that manhood is a hard thing to obtain, the knowledge we learn every day helps us young men to become men. Lastly, just recently I learned what responsibility truly is and I fell as though I have become a very responsible young man and I have learned that responsibility is a big part in becoming a man. We also went on trips as a plus we went to the Taste of Chicago, Millineum Park and more. We also were involved in a program to feed people that wanted food or may have needed. In conclusion this has been a great experience and i have learned lots about what it means to become an adult and I'm grateful I got the chance to be apart of this program.

Greencorps Youth Receive Introduction to Yoga

Greencorps Youth at Team Englewood learned that yoga is not only good for your body, it's great for your mind!  Deep breathing techniques were stressed during Thursday's yoga session with Tameka Lawson from iGrow Chicago.  Students learned that while one cannot control the body's immediate physical reaction to stressful situations, focusing on deep breathing can help control the emotional response.  The session, while brief, was very informative and the response was overwhelmingly positive.   Thanks, Tameka!!
