PAVE Events

At PAVE, we believe in the power of holding space for parent leaders to not only meet with one another but with 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. And with hard work, comes the joy of celebrating doing this work together, and if you know PAVE, then you know we love to celebrate with a great party!

We love welcoming new faces in the PAVE family! Learn more about our events and how to register below!
