Find the Great in Every Girl

Pace's Day Program

Pace’s team of counselors and educators provide free year-round middle and high school academic services, counseling, life-skills training, career preparation and more, developing individualized approaches based on each girl’s unique strengths, life experiences and needs.

Pace's Reach Program Services

Pace’s team of therapists and counselors offers social, emotional, behavioral health and support services for girls ages 11-17 and their families. Reach therapists travel to girls to provide services in their home, school or community, and also meet with girls online.

Our Impact by the Numbers

Backed by over three decades of experience and proven methods, Pace's nationally recognized early intervention model has proven to be successful in curbing unemployment and involvement in the juvenile justice system.

A research study conducted in 2019 found that Pace nearly doubles the likelihood of girls being on track to graduate from high school as compared to girls with the same risk factors that did not attend Pace.
