Action Network's Teen Action Project —TAP— provides a safe environment for youth ages 11-18 to come together and connect through meaningful activities, educational opportunities events and conversations to create a kinship with peers and support through mentorship. Within the Teen Action Project, there are numerous programs for youth to connect, learn, and take action in our community based on their interests. In our programs, every youth has a voice and unique contribution to share with the wider community, along with opportunities to build leadership skills, find artistic expression, and foster healthy relationships. 

 

TAP's  mission is to increase awareness, offer education, and foster connectivity through collaboration.
