Getting Youth “Tapped In”
The UNICEF Tap Project is a nationwide campaign that provides the world's children access to safe, clean water.
Youth can get involved with the UNICEF Tap Project in many ways.
TeachUNICEF Educational Materials
TeachUNICEF features units and lesson plans on UNICEF's water, sanitation and hygiene programs and classroom activities for grades pre-K through high school.
TeachUNICEF is part of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF's national education program, which is committed to helping parents and educators engage children to be active global citizens and to work toward making a difference in the lives of their peers in need around the world.
Fundraise for UNICEF Tap Project
UNICEF Tap Project volunteers host fundraising events in their communities.
Youth have hosted bake-sales, organized water walks and benefit concerts and thrown dance-a-thons in their schools or communities. To learn more about event hosting, and to access all of the UNICEF Tap Project event hosting resources, visit tapproject.org/volunteer.
Promote the Campaign
Youth can promote the campaign in their local communities. Youth can write their local papers, or author an Op-ed piece for a community newspaper. UNICEF Tap Project volunteers receive resources to help them reach out to local media as well as social media outlets. To register as a volunteer, or to learn more about campaign promotion opportunities, visit tapproject.org/volunteer.
