TAPS Academy Program

TAPS Academy bridges the gap between youth and law enforcement in order to reduce crime and build better youth and police relations. The 11-week curriculum builds fundamental life skills that make the community safer and students less susceptible to crime. This program is taught by law enforcement, education specialists, and subject matter experts. Giving students the unique opportunity to be in close proximity to law enforcement during positive interactions. 

 Additionally, all TAPS Academies participate in a service-learning project. Service learning is an educational approach that combines learning objectives with community service in order to provide a progressive learning experience while helping their communities. Check out our modules.
