Women in Networking’s recent "A Women's Symposium 2010" was an outstanding success! Hundreds of women enjoyed a diverse mix of exhibitors and food vendors as well as workshops on topics including parenting skills, projecting an image, networking, how to budget your money, technology for your business, and more. All proceeds from the Symposium benefited the PACE Centers for Girls of Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties.

Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has awarded PACE Pasco a $2,500 "Raising Up Healthy Women and Girls" grant to support PACE's Spirited Girls! programming.
Spirited Girls! is a gender-specific, research-based program aimed at preventing and/or decreasing high-risk behaviors among at-risk teenage girls. The curriculum includes both academic and recreational activities and is designed to build self-esteem, strengthen protective factors, and promote life-long healthy decision making. Each month, activities focus on one of PACE's Values and Guiding Principles, and the PACE Pasco girl who has best exemplified the month's Value is honored as "Spirited Girl of the Month".
Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is committed to promoting healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world. The grants program allows the women of the church to carry out ministry in many different ways and through many exciting programs across the country and around the globe.
