Project Anti-Violence Education

PAVE is an innovative program developed to address the problem of youth violence. Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri developed the PAVE program to help girls grow strong by empowering them to prevent violence in their lives. The program has been delivered to more than 300,000 young people in the jurisdiction since its inception. In 2013-2014, we facilitated PAVE programs in nearly 100 schools in Eastern Missouri.
