Teaching Assistants in Public Schools (TAPS), is a community service organization that sends Brandeis volunteers to local Waltham Public Schools. Under the Brandeis Waltham Group umbrella, TAPS aims to enhance the educational experience and enrich the lives of both the Waltham and Brandeis communities. At these schools, volunteers are placed in classrooms to work in various capacities, based on teachers’ individual needs. Our volunteers mentor students, facilitate lessons and build deep relationships with students. We've sent volunteers in local schools for the past few years with great success and each year our program is met with increasing enthusiasm in the Brandeis and Waltham communities.
