The Peace and Education Coalition is making a positive difference in the lives of youth throughout the Back of the Yards Neighborhood. Over the past 20years, funds raised from our Annual Scholarship Fundraiser event have supported over $1,000,000 in educational expenses for over 500 community youth in high school and college.
We are grateful to our generous supporters who contributed to our 19th Scholarship Fundraiser event at the Back of the Yards College Preparatory High School. Please mark your calendars for Saturday, May 20, 2017. Join us again this year as we celebrate our community’s schools, leaders, businesses, students, and our valued volunteers with an amazing community fundraiser event. Local restaurants and vendors are providing a “Taste of Back of the Yards” once again as we honor José Alonso and Priscila Gonzalez, Sarai Jimenez, and Elizabeth Sauceda — all past scholarship recipients.
