TAPS Legacy and Military Mentors Mobile App

TAPS is excited to offer Good Grief Camp Legacy and Military Mentors a secure way to build relationships, keep training lessons at hand and provide updated information.  We designed a special “app within an app” for our Good Grief Camp Legacy and Military Mentor community. 

Military Mentors

The system will work just like our normal event apps, but will be created within our larger event app as an event exclusively for Good Grief Camp Legacy and Military Mentors and TAPS staff moderators. You will find downloads of training information, motivational pictures and can use the activity feed to stay in touch with other mentors and learn from them. We have added topic channels for areas of interest and other new ways to learn and stay connected. During each regional or national seminar event specific logistic and schedule details will be available for military mentors attending those events. As the app grows and more volunteers participate, we will continue to add new resource features and ways to connect. 

We are adding mentors on a rolling basis.  You will soon receive a special invite via email with the password to join the Good Grief Camp Legacy and Military Mentor event.  Remember, this group is only open to approved Good Grief Camp Legacy and Military Mentors who have passed their background check. We want you to have a safe place to talk and share about your experience as Good Grief Camp Legacy and Military Mentor for TAPS.

How to Download the App

The app is now available on iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded in the App Store and Google Play store by searching “TAPS Events." The app will move up in rankings as more people search for it, but if you don't see it at the top of your search results, just scroll down and look for TAPS Events. 

Security Verification & Access

Access to the app is a 2-step security verification, which requires an individual email and password for each adult user. The password will be emailed to military mentors registered for 2019 events and past military mentors. If you think you should have access to the app and haven’t received an invite prior to the event you registered for, please fill out this quick access request form. TAPS staff will update your record and confirm your access to the mobile app as quickly as possible--usually within two business days. 

What’s my Username & Password

The password for the 2019 Good Grief Camp MIlitary Mentor app will be directly sent via email invitation to registered military mentor volunteers. Your username is the email you used to register. If you previously downloaded the app for another event, you will continue to use the first password you were assigned. If you forgot your password, email appsupport@taps.org for assistance. 

Getting Started

Setting Up Your Profile

You can immediately set up your profile (click top left corner), add a photo and link your social media accounts. Our social feeds for comments using #loveliveson, #gratefulnation and #tapsfam will pull directly into the mobile app and users can post from the app directly to their social media accounts.
