Our History



Since 2005, Parent Action Coalition for Education (PACE) has been fully committed to its original goal of training parents to advocate on behalf of their children to assure they receive the education and quality life skills required to enable them to become productive self-sufficient residents of their community. PACE, in conjunction with parents and other community based organizations and groups, with whom we collaborate, strives to promote and accomplish the following: 1. building self-esteem 2. personal hygiene and proper grooming 3. promote social responsibility 4. increase school attendance 5. explore career and entrepreneurial opportunities 6. financial literacy and character development. The PACE Coalition uses volunteer mentors from the community to conduct its programs. These mentors are recruited from sources such as colleges, churches, schools, the police departments, businesses and other community based organizations. These mentors offers teaching, training and technical assistance in the art of adult development, economic job skills, mentoring, tutoring, economic and financial literacy,  computer literacy and violence prevention. In addition, PACE mandate is to support and to teach youth and their families who are  how to self-advocate for self-sufficiency.
