Twelve years ago, my daughter was 15. Despite the fact that, at the time, I had 26 years' professional experience in the social services -- the majority of which were with adolescents -- no matter what I did, I couldn't "fix" the problem. PACE was a lifesaver for us. My daughter was attending an alternative school which became the site for Florida's only off-site PACE Reach Program. Counselor Lorraine provided guidance, friendship and support to us both during a very rough path in our "journey" through adolescence. PACE was one of the few highlights of my daughter's less-than-stellar high-school years. Through PACE, she felt cared-for, accepted and safe in a sometimes-scary school.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

both my personal life (see review) and my professional life (I referred many young ladies from a diversion program that the agency for which I worked operated.)

Ways to make it better...

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

...ensure that all communities had a PACE center or a PACE Reach program and that each program received all of the funding it needed.

I have been impressed with the training provided PACE Center teachers in research based strategies of instruction. I am a college professor in special education and was hired by PACE to provide middle school/high school literacy strategies for reading across the curriculum. The teachers who attended the two day workshop were awesome! They worked collaboratively modeling for each other strategies to engage diverse learners on varying ability levels. The effort of both the teachers and the overall administrative support was exceptional. I am pleased to have been associated with the PACE Center for Girls.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have shared the poems the girls have written each year in my pre-service classes at the college level. I believe it is important to show others that everyone has merit and by cultivating the human spirit we all can be successful.

More feedback...

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

provide positive outcomes for many more girls who need someone to care about them.
