TAP staff Karen and Frank spent the day visiting a few rural areas around Austin to discuss ways to bring TAP programs to even more youth throughout the Austin area. While in Taylor they even stopped by an Ostrich farm to say hello!
TAP hopes that within the next year to have extensive programming throughout all of the rural areas that surround Austin. Youth in these communities often lack opportunities to become involved in arts programs. In addition, these rural youth are just like youth in every other community–they deal with real life problems like bullying, low self esteem, dating violence, prejudice and more.
TAP’s unique and engaging blend of creative arts and education for social change has the potential to make a great impact in rural areas and we are excited about partnering with these communities.
