We had a great time attending the Volusia/Flagler PACE Center for Girls “Believing in Girls” breakfast last week at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

PACE Center for Girls has 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. PACE offers services that take into account how girls learn and develop and its 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.

Kistemaker Business Law Group appreciates all the Pace Center does for girlsin our community and we were excited to support such a great cause. Thank you to Synergy Billing for sponsoring our table.
