    All students enrolled in a TAP Program are required by statute to take a Parenting Course. Students are pre-tested upon enrollment and post-tested upon completion. This year, all 10 of the students enrolled in the course at TAPP Immokalee demonstrated improvement in parenting skills upon completion. 

    Highlights:

    • 80% of girls who were served by TAPP Immokalee within the past three years are still in school or have graduated.
    • 9 girls who graduated this school year earned a standard high school diploma.
