Pace Center for Girls, Inc.
May 24, 2010

The Pinellas PACE Center for Girls has helped more than 2,000 girls reclaim their self-esteem, regain their lost academic credits, achieve emotional stability, find their voice and achieve success. It is the only gender-specific program that helps girls stay out of trouble, teaches life management skills and helps them learn how to learn. In today's society, more juvenile females than ever are entering the justice system and PACE is the only alternative to incarceration that works!

The Great!

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

Specific outcome measurements: 93% improve their academics and 89% remain crime free after one year of transitioning out of the PACE program.

More feedback

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

Its patience with girls who are initially unable to control their actions due to the many issues they have experienced in their lives.

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

Always acting in the best interest of the girls.

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

Develop in-school PACE centers in every public school in Pinellas County, staffed with teachers and counselors, to help girls succeed when the first symptoms of trouble or academic underachievement occur.
