Volunteers make TAP’s world go round!

“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.” -Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan

By the end of the year TAP will have reached 16,500 youth all over Central Texas at over 120 sites through After School Programming, TAP In The Classroom, Youth Theatre Ensembles, and TAP In The Community. Volunteers give us the capacity to further our reach to create social change. Thanks to all of your hard work, we continue to grow and continue to give more young people a chance to learn critical life skills, gain tools for creative expression, and have successful experiences that build self-esteem and confidence.
