Founded in 1994 when gangs, crack houses and pollution held sway over South Bronx streets, Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice, (YMPJ), is a faith- based center for urban ministry. It is dedicated to fostering peace and justice through youth and community organizing and development. And it uses the principles of Catholic Social Teaching along with arts and education outlets for teens and wrap-around support services for parents. Youth trained here have a track record of success using faith and justice to organize, repair and rebuild their communities.
