Giving to PACE means
giving to GIRLS!
Sponsor a Girl Description
Breakfast: Many of the girls that ride the bus may leave their homes at 6:00am and transfer buses several times to be able to arrive at school on time. We ensure each girl has something to eat when entering the building in the morning. Annually we project needing $4,000 a year for this need. Your sponsoring a girl gift of $250.00 supplies a light breakfast for one girl every morning for a year.
School Supplies: As in any school adoptions of new textbooks and related supplies are necessary to keep the curriculum current. Our book budget is $5,000 per year. Classroom supplies such as paper, pens and notebooks average $4,000 per year. We want each girl to have quality supplies and materials leaving no additional barriers to their academic success. You can help us make sure that happens for one girl a year with your commitment to sponsor a girl.
Incentives: Assisting our girls with developing personal skills for success means celebrating with them when they do. Our behavior management system measures their new behaviors and allows them to “buy” things they need or want with points they earn. One girls success incentives for a year are included in your sponsor a girl gift.
Uniforms: 5,000 a year is budgeted for use from our community support dollars to supply each girl with PACE T-shirts. Although the girls like their individuality wearing a PACE T-shirt takes the pressure off of not having name brand clothes and deciding how to dress for school. You can supply 5 PACE shirts for one girl as part of your $250.00 gift.

PACE has an on-going campaign to support each anniversary year of our Center in Palm Beach County!
This year marks the 18th Anniversary of PACE in Palm Beach County. PACE (Practical, Academic and Cultural Education) Center for Girls is a day treatment program providing gender-responsive educational and social services to at-risk adolescent girls. Our non-profit, non-residential centers address the increasing needs of young girls, ages 12-17, and offer an alternative to incarceration or institutionalization. Founded in Jacksonville in 1985, with $100 and a donated room in a local church, PACE Centers are now located in 18 of Florida’s cities due to the significant success it has had with adolescent girls.
Through our 18 years in Palm Beach County, PACE has served over 1000 girls and currently serves approximately 115 girls throughout the year. With your support, we can do so much more for so many more girls. Your tax-deductible gift ensures that PACE will be a resource to girls for years to come and that all girls can find their voice, achieve their potential and celebrate a life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity and grace.

PACE Center for Girls is seeking your help in providing an opportunity of a lifetime for our girls. In the late spring of 2014, we will be embarking on a trip to the heart of our nation, Washington, D.C. The objective of our trip will bridge the gap between the academic study of government and politics. It will put a “real face to government” while providing valuable insights and knowledge that are not available in the classroom.
The girls will be treated to a comprehensive look at Washington, D.C. from the inside – ranging from a special V.I.P. tour of the White House, a symbol of vigor of American democracy to the U.S. Capitol, where under one of the world’s largest domes – the magnificent cast iron Rotunda – members of House and Senate engage in spirited debates that determine the laws of the land.
Girls will continue to experience Washington, D.C.’s most familiar vistas, such as the U.S. Supreme Court, Vietnam Women’s Memorial, Justice Department, National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of African Art, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Nation Museum of Women in the Arts, Arlington National Cemetery, Washington Monument, Ford’s Theatre, F.B.I. Building, Pentagon, Kennedy Center, and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, just to name a few of the most venerable and celebrated monuments and museums, theatres and galleries in our Nation’s Capital.
Please help us to provide an unforgettable educational, cultural and a lifetime experience through the exploration of Washington, D.C. Your tax-deductible contribution is an investment in our girls - tomorrow’s leaders. Would you consider a gift to support our vital services for girls?
