Pursue Your Passions

Whether your interests lie in technology, the arts, music, journalism, sports or urban agriculture, we offer a safe and supportive environment that you can call your own! This is the place to develop your unique talents, learn, grow and have fun.

For ten years, Gary Comer Youth Center has been enriching the lives of young people from across Chicago’s South Side with academic and enrichment programs that foster future success.

Our goal is to help young people expand their horizons outside of the classroom, discovering their passions and fostering growth and achievement.
