Chicago Peace Corps

Founded in 2015 by a cohort of students from the Sargent Shriver Program for Leadership in Public Service, the Chicago Peace Corp envisions working to create sustainable peace in the City of Chicago. Reflecting the values embodied by Sargent Shriver’s commitment to serving diverse communities, the Chicago Peace Corps focuses on creating a restorative justice community on the UChicago campus that connects to the larger restorative justice moment in Chicago. Members participate in weekly discussions about restorative justice, community development and related topic, and volunteer with local restorative justice practitioners.
