PACE Center for Girls will provide prevention and early intervention services to 400 at-risk girls in Broward and Duval Counties, Florida. Funding will support transition services for girls in the PACE Day program or who have already transitioned from the PACE Day program. Transition refers to the transition of a girl back to her home school, graduation from PACE with a GED or diploma, securing of unsubsidized employment and/or attendance at post-secondary school including vocational education, or other appropriate placement. Transition services will prepare a girl for the transition and provide case management support for up to three years after leaving the PACE Day program. PACE staff will work with girls in the Day program to design a Transition Plan and provide resources to prepare them for transition such as job readiness training. PACE staff will also provide the necessary support, case management, guidance, and
resources to ensure a successful transition. Outcome measurements will consist of the number of girls still enrolled at PACE, those who maintain a positive transition and who do not offend or re-offend based on program records and data from the Florida Juvenile Justice Information System. NCA/NCF
