Volunteer Tim Hudson
Volunteer Spotlight:

Tim Hudson


Tim began his journey with PAVE as a volunteer class assistant for True Man, PAVE’s healthy masculinity training. He was immediately identified as a dedicated and eager learner and teacher. He brings great ideas to the team, helping evolve True Man presentations over the years.

“Tim always has a positive, upbeat attitude, and we are extremely lucky to have his talents on our team!”

-Erika Parry, Volunteer Coordinator

When he is not helping PAVE empower young men, Tim loves to cook and travel. He even lived in St. Petersburg, Russia for 4 months.

Jovan Mays


Jovan Mays is the former Poet Laureate of Aurora, Colorado, National Poetry Slam Champion, TED Speaker and Director of Your Writing Counts: a youth poetry program throughout the Denver Metro that engages just over 200,000 students annually. Jovan has helped shape and support Project PAVE’s True Man Program.

“Jovan adds a unique layer of depth to our advocacy, bringing warmth and understanding to the experiences of young men of color. Jovan has a deeply humanizing presence, making space for young men who deserve access to full and complete childhoods.” Derek McCoy, Prevention Director

Volunteer Spotlight:

Meagan Kayl


Meagan brings her many talents to PAVE every year to assist with Battle of the Chefs in September.

“We are so lucky to have Meagan on the team. Her energy and resourcefulness are exactly what anyone planning an event needs.” 

-Tara Williams, Associate Director 
When Meagan is not helping PAVE connect with the Denver community, you can find her enjoying Denver’s live music scene or traveling to new and exciting places.
 
Our endless gratitude, Meagan. Thank you for all the work you do!

Board Member Spotlight:

Meagan McCaslin


Megan has been part of the PAVE family for almost a decade. She started her journey with PAVE as an intern and is now a dedicated board member.

Megan was recently diagnosed with FSGS, a rare kidney disease, which means her life now depends on a kidney transplant. She is on a waitlist for a cadaver kidney, but that likely takes 5-7 years. Megan needs a transplant from a living donor, which can last longer and happen more quickly.

And that’s where you could help! As either a potential donor or by spreading the word. If you or someone you know has ever considered donating an organ and is O +/- blood type, please consider filling out the donor health screen – the button is on the right side of this webpage: https://pslmc.com/specialties/kidney-transplant/

If you have questions about what being a donor would mean, I can connect you to Megan or you can reach out to her transplant coordinator Kathryn O’Dea at kathryn.odea@healthonecares.com or 720.754.2106.

You can also help by sharing her story–the more people who see it, the better Megan’s chances of finding a match!

Megan is an amazing woman, wife and dog mom of the best dog – Kevin! She is a dedicated member of the PAVE team and has championed the fight to end violence in our community for over almost a decade.
