The Apprentice Project (TAP) is a project under Freedom For You (E-6265). TAP identifies highly-skilled and extremely motivated volunteers in a wide range of skill areas categorized under 4 verticals of Visual Arts, Performance Arts, Sports, and Cognitive Skills. These volunteers are placed as TAP facilitators in schools where the children CHOOSE which skill they want to learn. Through the year, the facilitators conduct the TAP sessions aided with a curriculum framework which works towards building the essential skills. Also the children get exposure to various forms of that skill and are aligned to various opportunities within or outside school to showcase their learning in that skill. The year ends with a Project Based Learning showcase where the children put up their final performances or displays. In 2016-17, TAP started as a project driven by Teach for India fellows. It operated in 5 schools across Pune impacting 800 children through 52 facilitators. In 2017-18, TAP expanded to 11 schools across Pune impacting 1100 children through 83 facilitators. IN 2018-19, TAP would be working with 17 schools across two cities (Pune and Mumbai) and spreading its impact to 2000 children through 120 facilitators.
