Theta Nu Xi is proud to support the efforts of Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation that gives girls the opportunity to channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for United Nations programs that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls. With more than 1,300 clubs in 80 countries, Girl Up’s international network is learning leadership skills and the self-confidence to stand up, speak up, and raise up for their peers in the United States and around the world by raising funds for programs that support education, health, and safety for girls; by raising awareness of these key issues; and by advocating for solutions that will allow girls everywhere the chance to achieve their dreams.
PACE Center for Girls, has developed a nationally recognized, research-based non-residential program model that features a balanced emphasis on academics and social services, with a focus on the future for middle and high-school aged girls and young women.
The foundation of PACE is a gender-responsive culture that provides a safe environment that celebrates girls. PACE offers services that take into account how girls learn and develop and our supportive staff members respond to and celebrate each girl’s strengths and challenges.
The holistic, strength-based, and asset building PACE program model addresses the needs of girls and has garnered recognition nationally as one of the most effective programs in the country for keeping girls from entering the juvenile justice system.
