2014 Teen Assessment Project Report

The Madison County 2014 Teen Assessment Project (TAP) Survey was administered as part of an ongoing process to assess the risk and protective factors, developmental assets and resources present in the lives of adolescents in Madison County. The TAP Survey provided a voluntary, confidential, anonymous and structured process for obtaining responses to a wide range of questions from a large number of teens.

The information obtained from the TAP Survey provides a valuable supplement to other countywide assessments by providing the teen perspective on important issues. It is hoped that the data gathered from the TAP Survey will be useful when planning and developing appropriate programs and services to help youth make the increasingly difficult transition into adulthood, and when trying to obtain and prioritize resources to be used for these efforts.
