Come help feed the most vulnerable citizens with TAP-Seattle at FareStart, a culinary job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. FareStarts delivers meals 365 days a year to several area homeless shelters. We have 7 spots available to help prepare meals. Please sign up by filling out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/o2A0nMgRibDbiRjs1
Chefs will assign tasks based on individual skill and comfort level.
We ask that you commit to volunteering for the entire time, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We also ask that in the case of cancellation you provide us with as much notice as possible—this is very important as we need a certain number of volunteers to produce meals and often need to recruit replacements.

Philharmonia Northwest is joined by Taiwanese choirs from Seattle, Vancouver B.C., and Taiwan to give a rare performance of Tyzen Hsiao’s Ilha Formosa Requiem for Formosa’s Martyrs, and soloists Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu (violin), Felix Fan (cello), and Angelo Rondello (piano) to perform Gordon Chin’s Triple Concerto. The concert also includes Shui-Long Ma’s portrayal of one of the most famous legendary Taiwanese Robin Hood figures, Liao Tian-Ding.

This kickoff event for our mentorship program with TYAPN is happening! The program pairs TAP professionals and undergraduate mentors with students who are interested in having someone advise them on major and career choices. The kickoff will serve as a chance for those who have applied for the program to meet with their future mentors. This is an invite-only Facebook event for the mentors only to let the mentors know of the requirements for mentors.
Mentors are required to show up by 3:15 pm, but may optionally show up early by 2:00 pm if they are interested in listening to Elisa Chiu’s talk on her journey to entrepreneurship. However, her talk will be geared towards college students. Note that if you show up late, we will not be able to let you enter the room until the talk is over, at 3:15 pm, so as to not disturb the speaker’s talk.
Mentorship format: On average 3-6 meetings over 6 month period, on as needed basis. Note that you may not get paired with a mentee, as it depends on the availability of mentees within your major.
2:00 – 2:15PM Introduction of TYAPN & TAPS (OPTIONAL)
2:20 – 3:15PM Speaker Session: A Journey to Entrepreneurship with Elisa Chiu from Anchor Taiwan (OPTIONAL)
3:25 – 4:20PM Grab some snacks and Meet the mentors!
