TAP Education Programs Make A Difference

By Total Action for Progess  On 6/6/2017

Read this story from two TAP Young Adult Life Enhancement (YALE) students


Royanik and Mina, former YALE students, found it hard to stay out of trouble. Mina even admits she got locked up, fought a lot, and disrespected her mother and other authority figures. With guidance from the YALE program, the girls were able to turn things around and set their lives on the right track.

After enrolling in the program, Royanik said the YALE staff helped her through job readiness services, college tours, and community service learning projects. Mina noted that the program helped her get a lifeguard certification and find employment. Despite having graduated from the program, she explained that she still communicates regularly with YALE staff and appreciates their commitment to making sure students past and present flourish. Hoping to pay it forward, both girls have now returned to the program in order to act as role models for future graduates!

With more funding we can help more people like Royanik and Mina. Show your support by donating to TAP today.
