"At PACE Center for Girls, we have developed a nationally recognized, research-based non-residential program model that features a balanced emphasis on academics and social services, with a focus on the future for middle and high-school aged girls and young women.The foundation of
PACE is our gender-responsive culture where we provide a safe environment that celebrates girls. PACE offers services that take into account how girls learn and develop and our supportive staff members respond to and celebrate each girl’s strengths and challenges.
The holistic, strength-based, and asset building PACE program model addresses the needs of girls and has garnered recognition nationally as one of the most effective programs in the country for keeping girls from entering the juvenile justice system."

Please join us for the discussion even if you are unable to read the book. Note we will also be hosting Q&A on our CFLSWE facebook Group so anyone can participate remotely.
