‘Girls can be angry.’ New council working to help Bibb County girls stay out of trouble



The Pace Center for Girls in Florida is helping organize a Girls Coordinating Council in Macon to serve at-risk girls here.

An effort to address the needs of at-risk girls in Macon and put them on the right path is modeling itself after a successful program in Florida.

The recently formed Girls Coordinating Council launched in part by the Bibb County District Attorney’s office aims to introduce counseling and other hands-on approaches.

The Council, according to organizers, is a joint endeavor between the Macon-Bibb County School-Justice Partnership, the Pace Center for Girls in Florida and others “to collaborate with a focus on reforming and strengthening the local system of care for girls in need.”
