TAP is an after school program at Howard Kennedy Elementary School. The goal of TAP is to provide safe and secure after-school and summer academic and enrichment programming, for all youth in need of such activities. The services provided by Howard Kennedy's TAP program are targeted toward the needs of our students, family and community. This benefits communities by providing access to resources, and support to and for families. They keep more youth from getting into trouble after school and decrease the academic gap performance in various socioeconomic and ethnic groups.
