Adolescent Development

Adolescence is a time of change, turmoil and turbulence as youth struggle to find their identity and autonomy and transition to adulthood. During this time, the support of family is crucial for the positive development of this youth. At P.E.E.C.E.KEEPERS, we understand the biological, psychological and social factors in adolescent lives and provide them with an opportunity to build resilience.

Motivation/ Self Esteem

The cycle of vicious criticism can sap away a person's confidence and joy and instill in them a feeling of inadequacy, guilt, and sadness that can stop them from doing the things they love. We offer continued support that can help you address the underlying causes of your low self-esteem, enabling you to develop a healthier self-identity, greater feelings of self-worth, and a better relationship with yourself.

Teenage Pregnancy

At P.E.E.C.E. KEEPERS, we offer effective pregnancy counseling options, including reducing anxiety, creating a safe environment for the teen to discuss her hopes and concerns, sharing knowledge about benefits and consequences of various options, and helping the teen clarify her feelings on the matter so that she can make the right decision.

Anti-Gang Violence

Gang-involved youth are responsible for a disproportionately large number of crimes. We offer customized programs and strategies that can successfully tackle gang involvement by helping prevent gang involvements, empowering individuals to disengage from gangs, and reducing the frequency of crimes by gang members.

After School Youth Programs

P.E.E.C.E. KEEPERS is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization dedicated to helping at-risk and vulnerable youth transition, from an existence of abuse, neglect, and violence, towards a life of connection, hope, safety, belonging, and empowerment. We have a youth program that uplifts and empowers at‐risk youth, a mental health awareness campaign that promotes wellness among traumatized kids and kick-starts their journey towards peace, personal development, professional growth, and positivity.

Partnering with significant organizations, our youth program is active, inspiring, and heartfully uplifting. Just to name a few of their activities: our youth have played basketball with Sacramento Kings players' basketball camp at Hardwood Palace, they were co‐pilots flying airplanes with the Tuskegee Airmen, and were selected to participate in the annual Christmas Lights Event at Capital Christian Center. We are proud to support underserved communities to help them grow socially, ethically, and spread their positivity to all.

Our Impact: Empowering Underserved Families & At-Risk Youth

At P.E.E.C.E KEEPERS, we believe that it takes just a single act of kindness to change a person's life forever. We believe that every youth deserves a chance to achieve a brighter and happier future and live a life free of judgment and stigma, regardless of their circumstances and background. Since 2009, we have helped youth turn away from the path of self-destruction and hopelessness and follow their dreams by helping them let go of their pain, anger, and despair, voicing their fears, and making the right choices.

Our staff and volunteers are here to empower at-risk youth towards lifelong personal growth and instill in them a strong belief in their own abilities through counseling, therapies, mentoring, and positive connections.
