A Gap year ROOTED IN COMMUNITY,
COMMITTED TO RECONCILIATION. 

Step out of the classroom. Step onto the streets. Be changed forever. 


In 2015, Taproot invited 12 students from Kivu Gap Year to immerse themselves in the neighborhoods of South Philadelphia to take a deeper look at issues facing urban American through the perspective of local residents. (Many thanks to Annie for putting this video together!)
