TAP, a program of Justice Resource Institute, is a therapeutic after-school program for children ages 6-12 who have emotional, behavioral, and social challenges. The program is designed to assist youth in learning age-appropriate coping strategies to handle and express their feelings safely. Youth learn these skills through participating in daily group therapy sessions and structured activities.
If you wish to work in a caring environment with young children, TAP provides a wonderful service and learning opportunity. Volunteers with TAP fulfill a valuable service to our programs.
TAP is held daily from 2:30 - 5:30PM during the school year. During school vacation weeks and part of the summer, the program is run from 9AM - 12PM.
The three program sites (Norton, Plymouth, and Sandwich) each participate in a summer camp component.
You can choose to participate in a variety of activities, including:
Provide assistance to the youth during the milieu by helping them with writing or reading (if applicable).
Assist a staff person with individual or group activities (if applicable).
Play board games or cards (if applicable).
Share stories and listen (if applicable).
Preparing and passing out snacks (if applicable).
Assist in field trips (if applicable).
Provide clerical/administrative assistance (if applicable).
