ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21, 2017 PACE INTENSIVE SERVICES CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAM 2016/2017 PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS PRESENTED THEIR FINAL PROJECTS.
In its sixth installment, PACE Intensive Services program participants presented in the style of PechaKucha (pronounced peh-chak-cha); the Japanese word for the sound of conversation or "chit chat." It is a presentation style formatted to provide a quick, concise and visually satisfying depiction of a topic, organization or project to any audience. PACE adapted PechaKucha as a programmatic tool for our Intensive Services Capacity Building Program.
Each year, program participants gather informally to talk about their organizations and share their capacity-building projects, processes, and progress. PACE opens this sharing circle to our most important stakeholders, giving you an opportunity to learn about the ten community-based nonprofits participating and the wonderful work they do in our community.
A partner of the United Way of Allegheny County since 1968, PACE has provided over 10 million dollars in support of the over three hundred organizations. Ten years ago, PACE redesigned its grant program into a capacity building program with the opportunity for an implementation grant. In 2011-2012, BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania joined PACE as an investing partner in this program. 2014-2015 announced investing partners PNC Charitable Trust and The Faulk Foundation. In the past, McAuley Ministries has also supported the program.

Pecha Kucha is Japanese for chit-chat. PACE put this together for organizations to have 20 slides on each organization and give 20 seconds per slide to talk about. This is a fun way to learn about different organizations that are funded by PACE and to see how they can work with one another which PACE promotes.
