TAS' Place is one of the top notch nonprofits in Southern MD. From the etiquette/tea parties to the entrepreneurial inspired seminars, this organization is sure to support the community via many diverse methods. The founder, Ms. Monica Swann, is very organized and thorough with the programs. I am more than happy to assist whenever I can, as well as bring both my daughter AND my son to any of the events. Keep up the good work, TAS' Place!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand its budget in order to provide even more programs.

TAS' Place has been a wonderful experience for my 5 year old daughter, as well as my 7 year old son. They both have learned a great deal about table etiquette and manners. There are even the international facts that they've learned from Ms. Monica that I wasn't even aware of! My children are always saying, “When’s the next tea party?” That lets me know that TAS’ Place has made a positive impact on my children. There are also opportunities to speak up and answer questions. This helps them with self-esteem. They are learning and having fun, all at the same time!

TAS' Place is a stellar non profit organization servicing young people. Ms. Swann has taken old school values and infused them to a new generation. With those old school values and the new skills they are learning in the various program and workshops....our kids can't help but to be SUCCESSFUL. Thank you and keep up the good work!

This organization was very helpful for me to improve my leadership skills. It also helped me interact with young people my own age.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do nothing.

TAS’ Place is an outstanding program and is well needed throughout America. My daughter enjoyed the life learning experiences. TAS’ Place helped her to grow and learn leadership /dedication that encouraged her future goals. The hands-on community events and projects enhanced her personal development. TAS’ Place is so remarkable because of the positive impact it has on kids it gives them something more to do than sit around watching TV, playing on computers, and talking on cells phones. Ms. Monica (Founder) is an amazing woman and has the heart of an angel her efforts in putting TAS’ Place together is a phenomenal accomplishment. Thanks

TAS PLACE changed my daughter's life! At the age of eleven she would come home telling me about the engaging topics they covered in class and all the exciting things they did. TAS PLACE gave my daughter a new sense of purpose; she was empowered and still remains that way to this very day. I wish every child would be lucky enough to come across their services!

TAS' Place is a wonderful nonprofit organization that reaches out to youths in a mentoring capacity. Monica Swann, the founder of TAS' Place, has a proven leadership in developing organizations to assist them in achieving their mission and objectives. She is utilizing her professional talents and personal vision to empower youths through mentoring, social and cultural awareness programs, financial literacy programs and career development. TAS' Place is a positive outlet for children to grow holistically as law biding citizens with a commitment to community involvement. I am honored to be associated with TAS' Place!

It has been my distinct pleasure to not only have working alongside this phenomenal organization, but to also witness firsthand the powerful impact that they exhibit in the lives of our youth. They are a key component in the growth and integrity of our younger generation. The dedication and compassion that TAS Place has, and their commitment to excellence is what makes them such a deserving candidate.
