Women's Engagement Team

Thank you for your interest in The Women’s Engagement “WE” Team, a group of dedicated community leaders who support the mission, vision and philosophy of Pace Center for Girls Miami. The WE Team comes together with time, talents and treasures to enhance the work being done at Pace Miami around their culture of CARING, LEARNING, PURPOSE and RESULTS.

Pace Miami opened its doors to the Miami Community in 2014 as an innovative prevention and intervention program providing year-round academic and social services that address the needs of girls ages of 11-17. Pace offers a holistic approach with small classroom instruction, one-on-one counseling, case management, health and wellness coaching, life-skills training, career preparation and more. The program develops an individualized approach based on each girl’s unique strengths, life experiences, and needs empowering girls to realize their true and full potential.

Activities the WE Team supports:

  • Monthly Career Days and yearly Career Week – bringing in community leaders to share their career experiences with the girls preparing them for life after Pace
  • Spirit Week – participating in fun activities 4 times per year allowing the girls to show their Pace Spirit
  • Graduation Day – recognizing and celebrating the girls graduating high school and those who have completed their middle school requirements and are moving up to high school
  • Girls Speaker Series – Inspiring speakers motive and uplift the girls helping them find and use their voices
  • Holiday Celebrations – providing the girls with a Thanksgiving Luncheon and a special Holiday Celebration to create a time of festivities for all
