About the Darst Center
The Brother David Darst Center is a social justice education center located on the southside of Chicago, in the Bridgeport neighborhood. Founded in 2002 as a ministry of the De LaSalle Christian Brothers, the Darst Center is unique in providing opportunities for youth and young adults to see more clearly the faces pushed to the margins of our society.
In addition to gaining greater awareness of others, participating youth and young adults are challenged to respond to the many needs of our world as discovered and explored through Darst Center programs. It is our hope that, through participation in Darst Center programs, young people feel inspired to respond to the many needs of the world around them.
