BEING AN AGAPE VOLUNTEER IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A LASTING POSITIVE EFFECT ON AN AGAPE STUDENT. IT IS AN EXPERIENCE WHERE ONE CAN EXPOSE THAT BOY OR GIRL TO OPPORTUNITIES BEYOND BOLTON ROAD AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN HOW HE OR SHE VIEWS THEIR PLACE IN THE WORLD.
Dinner for Kids / Food Volunteering
This is our greatest volunteer need! Providing dinner for our students is a wonderful way to serve their bodies and minds before they are taken home for the day. We serve each school dinner one at a time in the evenings so the sign-ups to serve dinner are separated by school in this same way. We need volunteer help to serve dinner to each of the three schools everyday Monday through Friday.
Dinner for Bolton- 4:45-6:00 pm, kids sit down to eat at 5:15 pm
Dinner for E Rivers- 5:15-6:30 pm, kids sit down to eat at 5:45 pm
Dinner for Sutton- 5:30-6:45 pm, kids sit down to eat at 6:00 pm

Agape provides a supervised, safe haven for students to receive tutoring and homework assistance every day 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.
We have tutoring every Monday-Thursday that Atlanta Public Schools are open.
Elementary School Homework Hour is from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm
Middle School Homework Hour is from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm

CUPP READING TUTORING
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.
This is an extremely enriching experience that involves our volunteers giving our students the greatest gift available: the ability to read.
You can become a Cupp reading tutor by coming to our facility and participating in a preparation training that takes about three hours.
To find out more information about scheduling trainings please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a group who wants to volunteer and you are looking for an experience beyond providing dinner to kids, please consider participating in a Corporate Tutor Day. Corporate Tutor Days are a deeply meaningful experience for groups and can be flexible depending on what the goals are for your team. A typical Corporate Tutor day lasts from about 2:45 to 6:00 PM as follows:
2:45 PM to 3:15 PM – tour the facility and receive volunteer training
3:15 PM to 4:15 PM – tutor during homework hour
4:15 PM to 5:00 PM – help facilitate enrichment time
5:00 PM to 6:00 PM – provide dinner to kids
To find out more information about scheduling a Corporate Tutor Day and customizing the experience for your team please contact email@example.com.

Agape serves 45 senior citizens during a day-time program centered around Recreation, Activities, and Games. We take our seniors on field trips most days of programing, but they have fellowship, bingo, and lunch at our facility every Tuesday from 10:30 am- 1:00 pm. Volunteers can help provide social care, facilitate bingo, and serve lunch to our seniors each Tuesday. They would love to hang out with you!

Over the summer Agape provides 8 weeks of enriching summer camp experiences. Camp JumpSmart is an academic preparatory camp for rising Kindergarten-2nd Graders focusing on reading comprehension and math basics. Go Girl Go & FIT Camp are our two sport camps for girls and boys rising into 3rd grade-7th grade. Camp Elevate is our teen camp through which our teens experience outdoor adventures, college tours, and participate in finance & entrepreneurship courses.
We serve lunch to each of these camps during the summer Monday through Friday in the same shift style as we serve dinner to schools during our after-school programs and need volunteer help to make this happen.
We also need tutors to help with Camp JumpSmart. You can sign up to volunteer for a week, a day, or an hour at a time with our youngest kids.
These opportunities will be available for sign-up by May 1st.
