Teen Accountability Program
The Teen Accountability Program (TAP) is the only mandated accountability program in New York City that works with teenage males who have shown signs of violence towards their girlfriends or female family members.
The main objective of this 26-week group program is to educate teen men in an effort to deter abusive behavior that would eventually lead to imprisonment and to promote healthy relationships.
Participants are urged to take responsibility for their actions while examining ways in which their abusive controlling behaviors damage others as well as themselves.
