Mission Statement

PACE provides girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy.

Description

Academic Education: Each PACE Center has a cooperative agreement with the local school board to provide academic programs. These include remedial services, individual instruction and specialized education plans. Middle and high school self-paced curriculum are offered during a minimum of 300 minutes of academic instruction daily which is designed to meet the academic level of each student. While enrolled in PACE each girl must work toward obtaining her educational goal. After leaving, PACE encourages the girls to continue their education by offering assistance in financial planning for vocational or college enrollment through our transitional services case management.

Therapeutic Services: Individual case management/treatment plans are developed for each student based on a detailed psychosocial needs assessment. Individual, group and family counseling sessions are conducted to meet the individual needs of the student and her family. A staff member is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Parental Involvement: Engaging the significant adults in a girl's life are critical. At a minimum staff maintains regular contact with parents, which include home visits, office sessions and telephone contact. Parent groups and other activities help the parents learn the skills necessary to assist in their daughter's growth and are an integral part of the program.

Community Volunteer Service: Girls are required to participate in monthly volunteer service projects to promote self-worth and involvement within their community. The students determine the type of volunteer service project, learn project management skills along the way and begin to see themselves as a part of something larger.

Transitional Services: PACE conducts an unprecedented three years of comprehensive follow-up for all girls attending the program for more than 30 days to ensure the girls continue with their education, employment or appropriate referral services. For girls served less than 30 days, three months of transitional services is provided.
