Partner Organization Spotlights

We want to bring a spotlight on the organizations we support and raise funds for. These change often, so make sure to check back to see what our current focus is!

June 2021 – Pace Center for Girls

In this month’s Community Spotlight, we shine our light on Pace Center For Girls, Polk!

Pace is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, who’s mission statement includes providing “girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training, and advocacy.” Pace meets their mission statement goals through counseling services, leadership opportunities, help in finding jobs or applying for college, emotional support from their peers and the staff at Pace, and through small classes with teachers who have experience working with girls who need additional support. Pace provides these programs for free through support from organizations such as the GFWC Junior Woman’s Club of Lakeland and through limited government funding. Lakeland Juniors fundraise for Pace, to help these young women celebrate their victories and to encourage them to continue to engage in positive behaviors that will benefit them throughout the rest of their lives!
