Who We Are
Teen Alert Program, or TAP808, is a program of the Domestic Violence Action Center (DVAC). Our mission is to promote and celebrate healthy relationships for all ages, and to tap out teen dating violence through prevention education, individual advocacy, and social change.
We center our work around building a movement where Hawaii's youth feel safe, empowered, and dignified in making decisions on who and how they love. We are an inclusive program that believes all humans should be treated equally regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class, culture, ability, etc.
What We Do
TAP808 provides outreach education and workshops about teen dating violence, healthy relationships, and community intervention strategies. TAP808 also provides individualized advocacy support for teens and young adults experiencing dating violence.
We serve anyone in Hawai'i between the ages of 12 and 21, who is experiencing, at risk for, or has been affected by dating violence.
