FEBRUARY PROPS PARTNER: THEATER ACTION PROJECT (TAP!)
Theater Action Project is one of those things that make me so proud to live in Austin. Powerful and caring individuals make it their business everyday to inspire young people to become creative, courageous, and confident leaders in their communities. Click on the logo above to read their mission statement and learn more about this terrific organization.
At TAP!, teams of artists and educators work in partnership with schools and communities to create arts programs that explore critical issues through creative expression. Here is just a sampling of the tough stuff kids are talking about in TAP! programs:
BULLYING DATING VIOLENCE PEER PRESSURE LITERACY GANG PREVENTION HOMOPHOBIA FOOD JUSTICE CULTURAL AWARENESS SEXUAL HARASSMENT EMOTIONAL LITERACY VIOLENCE PREVENTION
TAP’s programs reach more than 16,000 young people and adults every year with more than 480 hours of programming to youth PreK-12th grade.
By raising funds for TAP! we help end these debilitating social ills. 5% of EcoClean’s revenue every Wednesday goes to a local non-profit. We call this our PROPS! Program. This month, visit us on one of the FIVE February Wednesdays to make a difference for TAP!
Giving kids the tools they will need to fight detrimental social norms and stand up for what they believe in is such important work. Thank you TAP!!
