COVID-19: Apply Now for Student Emergency Funds, Health Attestation, For Visitors
Call 509-279-6033 for a brief overview of PACE Services and schedule a time to meet with a member of our team.
Our College to Career program ran from 2015-2021. Because of a loss in funding, it is not currently available. Contact PACE to see how we can serve you with our other components.
If you have completed the intake process with PACE’s employment support manager to determine eligibility and have funding through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) and/or Spokane County Developmental Disabilities, our employment team will try to help you find a job. Once determined eligible, you are assigned an employment specialist who works with you to determine your strengths and interests. Your employment specialist teaches you the skills needed to find a job. The level of assistance is determined by the skills you currently possess.
Many students are nervous when they first try something new. We hope you will feel welcome and comfortable once you come into our program and meet our friendly, compassionate staff and start to get to know the rest of the students. Be sure to ask for help if you need it! If you need to schedule an appointment to visit the Lodge before your first day of classes, we are happy to do that following all the COVID restrictions and guidelines.
Be prepared for your classes or other programs. Come with a good attitude, a willingness to learn, and paper and pencil.
PACE is a community college program. Come prepared to learn and to act like an adult. Be responsible for yourself and your behavior. PACE’s goal is to help you prepare for life and employment, so all our components focus on those two things. Treat your classes or other activities like they are your job – be on time, be consistent in your work, and be willing to learn. Also remember that eating in class is not allowed and cell phones should only be used with instructor permission.
State law only allows students to take each class a maximum of three times. If a student hasn’t yet mastered the content in the course, he/she should schedule a meeting with one of our staff members to plan an alternate class.
PACE classes are provided without cost for students; the Board of Trustees granted all PACE students a waiver that covers the cost of the classes.
It does cost to park at the Lodge or on campus. We do have limited parking meters available. Please bring change! Quarterly pass purchase information is located online here. You will want to log in as a visitor.
Do you face significant obstacles to employment or community inclusion because of a cognitive disability? Are you ready to achieve your life's goals? Let's help get you started.
