Teens Acting for Peace (TAP)
Are you concerned about violence or the threat of violence in your school or your community?
Are you seeking a proactive approach to dealing with this national tragedy of increasing violence?
The Institute for Peace and Justice has developed a dynamic program that teaches high school and middle school youth to be peace educators with elementary students. Teens Acting for Peace (TAP), a national youth violence prevention training program, is actively "tapping" the creativity and energy of the nation's youth to help build peaceful schools and communities.
The goals of TAP are
to train high school and middle school youth to teach the skills and values of violence prevention and the Pledge of Nonviolence in elementary schools;
to put these same skills and values into practice in their own lives;
to offer this vision of nonviolence to their own schools as well.
Student team leaders are selected for this program. If you are one of them you will be notified at the beginning of the school year.
