Please mark your calendars for May 6th 2014, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., our nonprofit is participating in the GREAT GIVE, a 24-hour online giving event designed to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in the allotted time as part of a nation-wide program called Give Local America.

This community-wide event will celebrate the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our community while raising critical funds for local nonprofits. Every donation will be stretched further if you donate to our organization through (www.GreatGivePBC.org or www.GreatGiveMartin.org).

Your donation will go a long way in helping provide Palm Beach County girls with a voluntary prevention program and school with the goal of improving their quality of life. PACE promotes and enables young women to complete their education, build self-esteem, and develop personal, social and family relationship skills. PACE girls learn to take responsibility for their actions, to make informed and positive decisions, and to become independent and self-reliant citizens. Donations made that day will also receive a portion of bonus funds - making your dollar go even further than it would on any other day.

In addition to online giving during the GREAT GIVE, donors can also call 1-844-GIVE-DAY or 1-844-448-3329 to make a secure gift by phone. The phone lines will be open from midnight - 11:59 p.m. on May 6.

 We hope you will consider supporting us on May 6th!

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.

 

Simply donate $18 right now for the 18th anniversary and you'll support our efforts to provide girls with a safe, nurturing place to find a path back to hope. Won't you please lend your support? Just $18 will make a difference. (Click: www.pacecenter.org, hit the DONATE button and select Palm Beach, West Palm Beach under the Center category.)

 

Please participate in the "$18 for the 18th" campaign by taking a moment right now to give what you can, and invite your friends to join in, too. Let's spread the word about the important work that PACE Center for Girls does with girls in Palm Beach County.

 

 

 

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?

PACE Center for Girls of Palm Beach County celebrates 17 years of Believing in Girls! PACE...believing in girls...even when they do not believe in themselves. Girls that come to us with little faith in their future because so many have little faith in them. Girls that have been marginalized and victimized and enter the juvenile justice system with a disturbing history of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Yet, girls that are strong and resilient. Girls that find confidence and their own sense of worth. Girls that find those things at PACE believe in themselves because we believe in them!

Over the last 17 years, PACE Center for Girls has worked with over 1000 girls in Palm Beach County. Everyday is a celebration at PACE! If you are interested in visiting the Center to see what all the excitement is about, contact Angela Clarke at 561.472.1990 ext 14 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
