Jamie’s Story
“Ever since I was in first grade
I was picked on for my weight,
how I dressed, how I talked,
pretty much anything someone
could find that was wrong
with me. One day I had enough,
and I got into a fight. This is
when my mother said — enough!
And she put me in an online
school. The online school was
difficult because it’s hard for
me to work without someone
helping me. That’s when my
mom told me about PACE.
When I learned more I knew it
was the best place for me.
When I came to PACE,
for the first time ever, I finally
felt like I ‘fit in.’ Now I’m getting
good grades. My mother is
so happy and proud of me.
I always thought that I would
be the one to drop out in high
school, but not anymore!”

2008/2009: 25 Years of Believing in Girls
It is a milestone year for Pace Center for Girls, Inc. As we
recognize all that PACE has accomplished over the past 25 years,
we thought it important to reflect upon our past and build wisely for
the future. The courage and accomplishments of our girls continue
to be our inspiration as we celebrate 25 years of Believing in Girls.
The rich heritage upon which PACE is built is evident in the faces of
the many thousands of girls whose lives have been changed at PACE.
PACE Center for Girls, Inc. began in 1985 as an alternative to
institutionalization and incarceration of girls and young women at
risk of entering, or who were already involved in, the juvenile justice
system. Today the mission of PACE has expanded to provide girls and
young women an opportunity for a better future through education,
counseling, training and advocacy. The philosophical foundation
of carrying out the mission is that PACE values all girls and young
women, believing each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice,
achieve her potential and celebrate a life defined by responsibility,
dignity, serenity and grace.
Over the past 25 years, PACE Center for Girls, Inc. has earned the
reputation as a national leader in providing gender responsive
programming and services. In doing so we accept both the accolades
and responsibility that this reputation brings. The cornerstone of our
work is to advocate for safe, gender responsive environments for girls
and young women, to hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards,
and to uphold our mission, our philosophy and our values and
guiding principles.

prosperity, luck, strength, peace, harmony,
purity and change. It can also be a symbol of
the sense of self that comes with maturity.
The qualities associated with the dragonfly
vary, but a few traits remain constant in all
of them: hope, love and change. This year

Porscha’s Story
“When I was in regular
school, I didn’t understand
the work. Everything went
so fast and I didn’t feel
comfortable asking questions
out loud. I skipped school
because I started to give up
and didn’t want to be there
anymore. At the end of my
ninth grade year my mom
and I were looking over my
report cards and my grades
were horrible. That’s when
I decided that I wanted
to change for the better.
I wanted to finish high
school and get good grades,
like I know I can. That’s when
I found out about PACE.
The PACE teachers and
counselors push me to
do my best and keep me
on track. Without PACE I
would probably be sitting
in a classroom failing.
But now, I’m on my way
to a better future!”

Angel’s Story
“I was extremely shy in
high school, so it was difficult
for me to make friends. And I had
some pretty unique interests,
which didn’t make things
any easier — ballet and
auto repair. The other kids
constantly made fun of me
for it. I started skipping school
to avoid them and my grades
began to slip. I transferred
to PACE Center for Girls and
it truly changed my life.
The girls and staff were so
positive and supportive.
For the first time ever, I actually
enjoyed going to school.
I went from a “D” average to
a solid “B+” average, earned
my high school diploma and
even received a college
scholarship, all while at PACE.
Today I’m in college studying
law and I’m also enrolled
in a two-year automotive
program to become a certified
mechanic. I grew up around
cars so I thought working
on cars would be a fun way
to pay the bills while studying
to become a lawyer.”
