The New England Patriot Experience will be April 13 to 16 and the optional Boston Marathon Service Day (partnering with the New England Patriots Foundation) will be April 16 to 18. We look forward to having you join us!

There are two components to this experience.

  • April 13 to 16: Survivors will partner with the New England Patriots for a time of Personal Development through Connection, Partnership and Networking. Participants will tour Gillette Stadium and the New England Patriots facilities, have round-table discussions and mentorship opportunities as you connect with members of the New England Patriot organization and tour local sights.
  • April 16 to 18: Participants may elect to stay longer and participate as we partner with the New England Patriots Foundation in a Service Day for the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 17. Participants will join the New England Patriots Foundation team and volunteer during the Boston Marathon to hand out water, food and comfort items to runners.


Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, TAPS is able to provide this event to surviving young adults at no cost.

About TAPS Young Adults Programmimg

In all TAPS Young Adults Programmimg, we focus on Care + Connection + Well-being. 

Care: We foster judgment-free spaces with peers who understand, where you can bring all that you carry and lean on others who won't feel burdened. 

Connection: When peers show up and support each other, it becomes a trusted and encouraging community, where we hope you feel free and safe to have fun. 

Well-being: With personal development tools for life and self-care and some time just for you, we help you focus in on your mental and emotional well-being - to uncover your own confidence, empowerment and growth.

Through a Peer Community of support, accessible resources and enriching experiences, we equip young adults to live content and fulfilling lives.
