TECHNOLOGY AWARENESS PROGRAMS (TAP)


TAP began in 1998, stemming from an idea brought about by Career Communications Group and the Foundation for Educational Development. The initial target group for TAP was black families during February—historically known as Black History Month. A few years later (2002), TAP branched out to Hispanic families during National Hispanic Heritage Month in October, and, in 2004, to Native American families during American Indian Heritage Month in November.

Each effort was dedicated to a month of driving TAP communication to help families focus on a dual message: (1) the importance of technology in their everyday lives, and (2) the importance of technology in the education and career preparation of their children. Particular attention was given to low-income families, as there was a persistent "digital divide” among this population.
