Thinking Ahead College Preparatory Program (TACPP) provides college bound juniors and seniors with college preparation know-how, through assistance devoted to college entrance essay writing, SAT/ACT test preparation, and overall one-to-one attention on college application process and career development. We achieve our mission through sub-programs such as: Operation Reach One (community service), Teens Training for a Better Future Workshops (career and professional development), TACPP Awards and Scholarship Program (scholastic achievement), and REACH OUT Alumni Network (social development).


Our students range in age from 14-17 years old, with over 90% of our students living in the inner cities of Liberty City and the Little Haiti community of Miami, Florida. Through our programs, our students have beaten the statistics year after year.
