PAVE Events: Building Connections
At PAVE, we believe in the power of holding space for parent leaders to not only meet with one another but also meet with city leaders, community stakeholders, and partners to build community and amplify the diverse voices of our city!
Each year, PAVE hosts a number of special events to connect, inform, and empower parent leaders to give families in DC a voice and choice in the vision for education in our city. We believe it is critical that all of those events build community, foster collaboration, and spread joy!
We love welcoming new faces in the PAVE family! Learn more about our past events and how to register for future events below!
