Be a sounding board for change
What is a TAP advisor?
The Acceptance Project is a student-run and led high school club. However, there is still a need for students to have an adult as their club advisor for support and guidance. As an advisor, you will also be taking on the role of a mentor, team builder, motivator, and role model. TAP advisors are not encouraged to facilitate or take part in the dialogue sessions. Your responsibility, rather, is to simply listen to the discussion and offer facilitation assistance when it is only truly needed. By listening and taking notes on the discussion, you will be able to successfully aid high schoolers in becoming better leaders and better mediators. While TAP advisors are only hired on a volunteer basis, the experience of aiding the mediators of tomorrow is priceless.

*At this moment, we do not know the exact day-of-the-week meetings will occur. Once the student ambassadors leave our program and confirm that they will be leading TAP at their high school, we will then be able to determine what days of the week work for them and you.
