Sac State's PAVE tutoring program wins national honor

Sacramento State’s PAVE program, through which University scholars tutor and mentor younger students across the city, has received the 2021 Program of the Year award from the National Tutoring Association.

The honor will be presented during a virtual conference Wednesday, March 17.

PAVE, which stands for Partnerships to Advance the Value of Education, pairs Sac State scholars with students and teachers from kindergarten through 12th grade. The program, which launched in 2019 and recently earned its accreditation, has operated virtually since the COVID-19 pandemic forced a switch to strictly online education.

“The PAVE program’s partnerships with school districts in our region serve as an important mechanism for achieving Sacramento State’s institutional goal as California’s capital university,” said Chao Vang, executive coordinator for Student Academic Success and Educational Equity Programs (SASEEP), a main collaborator on the program.

“Moreover, the deployment of our tutors and close collaboration with superintendents, principals and teachers advances our anchor university initiative in the region.”
