Home » About TAVTEC

It Takes a Village to Educate a Child (TAVTEC) is a non-profit organization that provides children and young adults with opportunities to develop social skills and life skills while simultaneously developing their self-esteem. Students discover their passions through exposure to real-life experiences. Our goal is to educate the whole child. We collaborate with families, the community and schools to create seamless programs that cater to our students needs and interests.


It is our belief that every individual has the capacity to excel and feel good about themselves once they discover their passion. It Takes a Village to Educate a Child was established to address this strong belief. We provide opportunities for individuals to develop their social and leadership skills while building a healthy self-esteem. We focus on discovering the “ability” within the disability!
