There is great in every girl.

Pace is a supportive community for girls to build healthy relationships, plan for their future and overcome trauma.

All girls, regardless of their story, deserve support on the road to becoming strong, compassionate and successful women.

When properly supported, all girls have the power to achieve their own vision of success, which leads to positive outcomes for themselves, their families and communities. Girls face challenges in public schools, the juvenile justice system and in accessing mental health care. For girls who require additional support or have experienced trauma, finding the best path forward in these systems can be overwhelming.

Our teachers and counselors offer academic courses, counseling, career preparation and more to help girls achieve their personal and professional goals beyond what they believed possible.

Before Pace, I skipped class a lot and wasn’t worried about my grades. Pace played a big role in me graduating high school. I could have given up, but I persevered.
