I enjoy helping others but I like to know that my time and money are well spent so it is with great passion that I help the PACE Center for Girls in Pensacola, Florida. It is not only a fact that PACE helps young ladies in trouble but over 80% of these young ladies do not return to the juvenile justice system which is a win-win for the girls and the tax payers! PACE Center for Girls in Pensacola is a model non profit organization.

The Great!

I am a former student at the PACE Center for Girls in Jacksonville and graduated 8 years ago. PACE was an amazing experience for me! I was in a lot of trouble and was on a terrble path in my life, and with the loving care and guidance of the PACE organization and staff, I am now in an amazing place in my life and I hold them hugely responsible for the changes I was able to make in my life. and I would strongly reccomend donating to this organization.

PACE is a wonderful organization that helps young women turn their lives around. We serve middle and high school girls who have gotten into trouble, or who may be heading for trouble. Most of these girls come from troubled backgrounds - broken homes, parents with drug problems, domestic violence etc.. Their lives have not been easy and it is easy for them to stray down the wrong path. PACE is able to provide a nurturing haven for these girls where they can develop their potential and start believing in what they are capable of doing. PACE stands for Practical Academic Cultural Education and that is what we provide. We are not just a school, but we develop all aspects of these girls' lives. Some of their journeys are amazing and their gratitude for what PACE does for them is overwhelming. Our success rate is over 90% which is unheard of. PACE is a jewel in our community that deserves the support it gets. Graduation is today and to see those girls graduate when they never thought they were capable ie very rewarding. Through the hard work of the staff and generous support of the community PACE stays fiscally sound.

As treasurer the last four years, I have watched the organization add new programs as funds are available. We now have a program to help the girls enter the job market after graduation which is so critical to their success.

My experiences with the PACE Center for Girls has been ongoing now for over 3 years. I have seen changes in these girls, and the lives around them. Most notably, however, has been with my now 15 year-old son. He has been working with PACE for the last 2 years, and the changes he has helped foster in the girls has helped him grow into a stronger leader, and an advoxate for better program. He assists with programs from fund raising to clothing drives, Easter baskets and Holiday gifts. He participates in quarterly clean-up events, and would like to one day go to the school to help with tutoring, when he is old enough. The changes I have seen in him have caused me to step back and really look at the program, and made me realize just what the program does. To keep the girls off the wrong path, and allow them to see what the right path is, to gently guide them along that right path and show them what it means to be an active member of society, and help them get there through positive re-enforcement, and prove to them it can be done, through thier own hard work and dedication, and not dwelling on the bad stuff, but focusing on the good stuff. PACE Center for Girls is the way to do it right. If PACE Center for Girls can be duplicated, some how copied through out the states, I would think it a good thing. There are not enough of them.

The results I have seen are not my own as much as the difference I have seen in the girls, as well as the changes I have seen in my son, now 15, as he has watched the changes in the girls, as he has done things to heklp them grow and change.

I graduated from PACE Broward County in 1996. With out PACE I do not know if I would have ever finished high school. They helped me mature and grow into a fine young woman. They made sure I walked that stage and remained by my side for guidance and support no matter my situation. I try to refer as many daughters’ there as I can. Thank you PACE!!

The Great!

Very much so. With great success!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just to make sure that every struggling teenage girl out there was aware that there is a school out there for them no matter what card life has dealt them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I was to attend a amazing school that most people pay top dollar for to send there kids.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

people that left me with lasting impressions in my life when I left.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

grow and do so much more for these girls.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to attend all four years of high school there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

to not have any reservations what so ever to attend or send your child to this school.

I went to Pace Centers for Girls in Marion County. I feel that this was the best thing that has ever happened to me. They helped me focus on my school while iwas dealing with bad things that had happened in my life at the time. I strongly recommend this school to all our young girls out there that are having trouble or need a different enviroment. When my daughter gets older I will try to get her in Pace because of my own experience with them.
