Our goal at Parent Academic Coaching Empowerment (PACE) is to assist children and families with high quality educational support services and advocacy to improve student achievement. By the end of the program, parents and teachers will have a broader understanding of our academic global society and how to manage everyday stressors. PACE provides workshops that are designed to empower parents, as we use holistic training sessions to help guide their children through their academic careers. We expose parents to a variety of resources that will prepare their children for the future and mold them to be well-rounded scholars. PACE is an inclusive program that seeks to provide support and encouragement to all children and families; no matter their background. We seek to develop the mindset for success in children and to prepare them to be productive members of society.
