Perspectives Charter Schools
Tap In Leadership Academy has partnered with Perspectives Charter Schools to provided a Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) for scholars that attend their charter schools during the academic year. Tap In offers a relationship-centered, hands on SEP. Our students embark on a multicultural journey; focusing on a different region of the world each week. Each enrichment activity is designed to expand on old skills, and develop new ones through creative, S.T.E.A.M. based activities.
Tap In shares values with Perspectives (A disciplined life).
Students were given the opportunity to build new friendships, advance academic and literary achievement, release some energy outdoors, and incorporate leadership skills through our diverse, adventure-filled curriculum. Previous activities include: a study of Brazil, Egypt and Traditional Native American culture. Along side a cultural expert, students created masks, head dresses, rain sticks and drums; cooked a variety of ethnic foods; participated in traditional ritual dances and martial arts; recreated culturally specific games and experimented with creating hieroglyphics and make-up. Exciting field studies have included the Shedd Aquarium, the Chicago History Museum, visiting Chinatown, Lurie Garden, Navy Pier, the Lincoln Park Zoo and much more!
