In November of 2013, a small TAP team was able to celebrate Shaneil Orr and Jo-Dean Tapper's graduation from Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (EMC) as well as many TAP birthdays! The team also ran workshops in finance, yoga, business, and leadership. The team returned in July of 2014 to execute the Leadership & Organizational Development program, in order for TAP Jamaica to prepare for the upcoming year.

This year TAP Jamaica's theme was Empowerment and Transformation. A daily session called "All about you" was where Jamaican participants decided that they wanted to make their own NGO in Jamaica called "TAP Jamaica". They elected a Board of Directors and created various committees!! We are so excited and proud to watch this new phase develop!! Thank you to Manifesto|Jamaica for all your support!
