The P.A.C.E. program was started in 2005 by the Omaha Latino Peace Officers Association in conjunction with the Police Athletic League and area volunteers. The program is dedicated to preventing “at-risk” and disadvantaged inner-city children from becoming involved in street gangs, crime, drug use and victimization. It provides an opportunity to develop discipline, self-esteem and positive moral values through wholesome competition and "free" participation in soccer, baseball, CrossFit and flag football. P.A.C.E. has always stressed the importance of education to our youth, and we now offer "free" A.C.T. preparation classes to our high school participants.
