PACE Center for Girls, Inc. is a community-based, non-residential prevention, diversion, and early intervention program in the state of Florida. PACE serves over 2,000 girls each year in 18 locations around the state as an alternative to incarceration by providing therapeutic support services, individualized and group counseling, a gender-specific life management curriculum, academic education, individualized attention, parental involvement, community service and 3 years of follow up transition services.
PACE supports the mission of the Department of Juvenile Justice by preventing juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, academic failure, and welfare dependency.
PACE reduces the number of girls entering the juvenile justice system and reduces the significant long term costs associated with teen pregnancy, substance abuse, dropping out of school and unemployment and long term economic dependency.
Katie was selected by staff for girl of the month for April.
Katie is an amazing student who works very hard and is especially conscientious about staying on top of her work. Katie is a kind, humble and enthusiastic student who deserved to be chosen for girl of the month.
Jasmine H. was chosen as girl of the month for the month of June. The Value and Guiding Principle was Focus on Strengths. As a young lady Jasmine exemplified this principle. She was a leader for her academic troop as well as other young ladies within the center. Jasmine served as a Peer Buddy and conducted excellent introductions to the center for new young ladies that were enrolling into the center. She also changed her outlook and attitude and focused inward on the positive strengths and attributes that she possessed.
Congratulations on making girl of the month!
