Volunteer Registration Goes Digital!!
In an effort to streamline our processes and work more efficiently, we are excited to announce that we have moved our previously paper based volunteer registration form to an online format. We ask that ALL new and returning volunteers complete this form by clicking the link below.
By completing this form and including your SSN, we will run the annual criminal background check on your behalf.
In an effort to ensure the continued safety of our children and to further adopt best practices in working with them, we are continuing with our volunteer process in place for all new and existing Homework Buddies and Cupp Reading Tutors. We hope you understand and appreciate our process and we look forward to having each of you return for the second semester of the 2018-2019 school year.

Volunteer one hour of your time each week during the school year to provide mentorship and homework assistance to the elementary and middle school children in our after-school programs. This is a deeply enriching experience for both student and volunteer.

We are excited about our move into the new building located at 2210 Marietta Blvd. NW, but we know you must have tons of questions!
Agape provides a supervised, safe haven in the after-school programs at a time of day when teen crime and teen pregnancy spike among unsupervised youths. During this time, tutoring and homework assistance for one hour each week during the school year. Students and mentors are often paired in elementary school and the relationship may last through high school graduation.
