Volunteer During Our After School Program For Elementary And Middle School Students
Agape provides a supervised, safe haven for students to receive tutoring and homework assistance everyday after school. All elementary and middle school after school programming occurs at our facility at 2210 Marietta Blvd. Volunteer one hour of your time each week during the school year to provide mentorship to our students and help us achieve our mission of academic enrichment.
Elementary School Homework Hour is from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm and Middle School Homework Hour is from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm every Monday-Thursday that Atlanta Public Schools are open.
To become a homework buddy, please start by filling out our online registration form. All new and existing after school volunteers must have an annual background check (if above the age 18) in order engage with our students. To complete the registration form you must consent to allow Agape to use the information provided to perform a criminal background check, at no cost to you.
We also ask new volunteers to complete the Darkness to Light (Stewards of Children) training which can be completed online for $10. To register for online training click here. A copy of you certificate should be emailed to email@example.com upon completion. Once completed, the certificate is valid for 3 years!
Become a Cupp Reading Tutor
Did you know that achieving reading proficiency by third grade is a major academic development milestone for elementary school students? To ensure all Agape students reach this program, we use Dr. Cindy Cupp’s reading tutoring program.
We rely on volunteers to bring this program to life during homework hour for students we know need extra help with their reading comprehension skills. You can become a Cupp reading tutor by coming to our facility and participating in an extra training that takes about two and a half hours. To find out more information about scheduling trainings please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an extremely enriching experience that involves our volunteers giving our students the greatest gift available: the ability to read.
