Review for Pace Center for Girls, Inc., Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The #1 thought that comes to mind when the name of PACE arises is that the program is so successful! Through education, counseling, training and advocacy one can watch an at-risk girl enter the program as a sullen, obstinant person and within weeks turn herself around to wanting to be a productive member of society. This is a nationally recognized program with a proven success rate!

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

Watching the young ladies lose their sullen expressions and reluctance to participate, I have seen turn-arounds that astound! Listening to graduates of the program talking about going to college, amd becoming productive members of the community is great!
