Taste of Tanner

|Venue:||Heritage Square, Downtown Phoenix|
This event is a fundraiser for a new Tanner-Thomas Career Institute (TTCI), a pre-K-12 charter school focused on the Phoenix “Disconnected Youth” population. These are young people ages 16-22 that are disengaged from society. This population crosses all socio-economic boundaries, they are not working, not in school and more than half did not graduate from high school. This estimated population of 93,000+ is twice as likely to live in poverty, have low paying jobs, lower marriage rates, and a significant increase in contact with the criminal justice system. This school is committed to creating the opportunity to reconnect this Phoenix youth population to become productive successful citizens.
