Public Assistance Comprehensive Education (PACE).
The Public Assistance Comprehensive Education (PACE) Program at Bronx Community College provides programs and services to assist students on welfare to successfully overcome barriers they meet while becoming productive members of the workforce. Each semester, PACE will recruit 200 students from the COPE program and work intensively in addressing their career, education, and parenting, emphasizing support and vocational skills training, which may lead to self-sufficiency and an end to welfare dependency. This report provides objectives, activities, and evaluations of the PACE program, as well as its grant proposal and budget narrative. Primary objectives of the PACE program include (1) providing academic, career, and personal counseling; (2) increasing retention and completion rates of PACE students; (3) providing supportive services; (4) assisting development of parenting skills; (5) assisting in the formation of realistic career and occupational goals; (6) developing entry-level skills in the job market; and (7) assisting PACE students in job placements.
