A good starter social work job
Social Service Worker (Former Employee) –  Tallahassee, FLFebruary 6, 2018
I enjoyed working with at-risk teens and see them make progress towards success. A typical day at work will be busy and go by fast. At times, staff are put in positions that they are not qualified to do. The staff are supportive of one another and the goals of the students; however, managerial staff are unstable and communicate poorly.

Math Teacher (Former Employee) –  Orange Park, FLNovember 2, 2017
This can be a very stressful job, but helping troubled teens always is. It takes a special type of person, and even for those people it can be tough. Turnover is high.
Pros
You are helping teen girls on a daily basis
Cons
Many teens are very disrespectful

A typical day consisted of interaction with the students, navigating stressed out and cut throat employees. Management could be supportive, but from different counties.

Intake Coordinator and Program Assistant (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLSeptember 18, 2017
Responsible for assisting the Program Director and ensuring all students needs were met in a highly paced environment. Responsible for keeping enrollment up at all times. Meeting with parents and students to see if the center was the appropriate placement for each student. Working with all counselors and teachers to ensure successful outcomes for the at risk youth at PACE.

You see the difference you make in girls' lives
Social Service Intern (Former Employee) –  Tallahassee, FLSeptember 6, 2017
I was an intern at PACE in Leon county. I built many connections with the girls and some staff members.It was fast paced and the team truly works together to benefit the students. Management, however, was not the best. At times, the academic side of management was a bit much. The program management was fantastic.

Poor work environment poor upper management
Counselor (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 9, 2017
Pace center can be a rewarding place to work when working with the girls. Work culture takes away from all that due to incompetent leadership and overall hostile work environment. Reach Director provides limited to no support and no training. Director of Reach program poor work ethics yet employees are suppose to perform. The staff turnover rate is very high. The stress level is high and you are given no support. Those in leadership are constantly absent and unavailable yet when something goes wrong they are quick to point finger especially Director of Reach. Every staff member secretly are looking for other employment. Director is not consistent with procedures as she provides one answer and it changes weekly yet when something goes wrong quick to blame employee corporate is aware and does nothing. No support whatsoever. I wouldn't recommend working at PACE. My experience was awful.
Pros
Working with girls is rewarding
Cons
Expectations are ridiculous with no support limited training

The students will be the main reason you stay
Mathematics Teacher/Advisor (Former Employee) –  Wilton Manors, FLJuly 2, 2017
While working at PACE I loved the students. You have the opportunity to truly make a difference and to see that change taking place. What I did not like was I found that some individuals in management had their favorites that they would provide special treatment for. All students deserved to be treated the same. There are some circumstances in which students are in crisis and need special treatment, but this wasn't always the case. Overall, I enjoy my time no matter how challenging it was. I made a difference and that's what truly matters. I must say that I did have a lot of support when it came to emotional and medical struggles.
Pros
Students, Emotional Support and opportunity to make a true difference
Cons
Some of the rules and special treatment of certain students over others

Good model, corrupted by uncaring, power-happy "leadership"
Instructor (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLJune 28, 2017
The model for the program is great- provide disadvantaged girls who have suffered some trauma with social and academic support. The staff is also wonderful... but the leadership is seriously lacking and creates a demoralizing and emotionally draining environment. Instructors are expected to serve as supervisors of girls majority of the time(from the time girls enter the center to the time they leave) and when it comes to time off, academic staff is held hostage for that providing coverage while others on staff seem to have an easier time getting vacation and even sick time. The salary is also not commensurate to the amount of responsibility expected in this position.

Part-time Reading/English/Health Teacher (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLMay 7, 2017
Although the population can be difficult, the staff comes together to support each other like no other place I've been. They need to pay more since you work year-round, but other than that, it is a nice place to work.

English Teacher (Current Employee) –  Winter Park, FLApril 20, 2017
Working with Youth is always rewarding. However, there is a lot of conflict between staff. Feeling of being unappreciated by management. Long meetings twice a week. Very little time off. High turnover rate of staff and students.
