TeenAge Program


Our Vision: A community where all young people have equal opportunity to fulfill their capacity for greatness.

TAP works in partnership with youth and their allies to use their voices, realize their power and influence change to create a safe and healthy community.

TAP achieves this by providing health education and training, increasing youth access to health services, and building partnerships with other youth service providers.
