PECC is a working community-based nonprofit focused on providing life skills through peer-to-peer education & support, resources in systemic navigation, and business & organization framework and marketing. Our mission is to promote community advocacy, social justice, and systemic change through community education.
We work to unite and support local organizations, neighbors, and businesses. We do so by creating space for peer-led education & niche support groups, productions & events, sharing education, and offering support.
Peer Education Community Center (PECC) began with a conversation between like-minded friends discussing resource and navigation gaps in Long Beach communities. Inside this conversation was the million-dollar question: how can ordinary people lead the charge toward community-centered systemic change? Driven by our founders, who come from diverse backgrounds in service, public health, leadership, development, and human resources, the origins of PECC came together.
