When Mayor Taveras took office three years ago, PASA hoped that his administration would be supportive of the work that we and our partners had begun under former Mayor Cicilline’s administration, but we had no idea that he would so enthusiastically embrace expanded learning and youth advocacy.
In those three years, Mayor Taveras has not only served as PASA’s Board Chair, but has wholeheartedly brought his passion for making sure all of our city’s young people succeed to his administration. Thanks to Mayor Taveras, the city has been one of PASA’s strongest supporters and under his leadership we’ve grown, deepened community connections, and forged new and stronger partnerships with the Providence Public Schools.
We can’t thank him enough for his visionary leadership.
