Pinella's Park, Fla. -- WorldLegacy's NC178 Leadership Team, based in Chapel Hill, N.C., completed an extreme makeover of the facility of Pace Center for Girls in Pinellas Park, Fla., over the weekend of Nov. 1–3. Seven individuals from all over the U.S. and abroad gathered to remodel part of the facility to express to the young women that they matter.
This project aligns with the team’s vision to provide a safe and beautiful space that supports girls who are in the justice system, experiencing a family crisis, victims of abuse, or who are at risk of dropping out of school. The team provided new commercial plank flooring and repainted the Great Room and re-carpeted, repainted and refurnished the “Calm Room.” In addition, they placed inspirational quotes on the walls.
This WorldLegacy Leadership Team is committed to inspiring future generations of leaders by creating a beautiful space for girls to learn, heal, grow, and connect. Their intention is to inspire future leaders to be connected to their families and the community.
This extreme makeover project is the culmination of WorldLegacy’s three-month leadership development program. What makes this project unique is that the WorldLegacy Leadership team of seven individuals must completely design the project from start to finish, cannot use any of their own money, and involve the community to be partners and complete 75% of the work. The team has a maximum of two weeks to prepare for the project, and the project must be completed in three days or less.
WorldLegacy is committed to maintaining standards of excellence for all legacy leadership projects. The quality of any work that is performed has to be industry grade. Over the years, WorldLegacy has donated more than $3,455,000 in cash, contributions and labor through projects like this one.
Work at the Pace Center for Girls culminated with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday, November 3. The ceremony celebrated and honored all donors, volunteers, and leaders who gave their time, talents, and resources to make the project a success.
