An old proverb notes that “it takes a village” to raise a child – and that certainly holds true for a child’s education. We are honored to partner with Agape to help ensure that the youth and families we serve have access to the education they need to succeed.

When I first met Miss Malika, I was nervous – but as we started working more and more, I got used to her. I was having trouble with reading and she helped me a lot.
-Elementary School Student served by Agape
Agape reached out to us to offer support and services to our students who live in two nearby apartment complexes. We worked together over the summer to identify students with high rates of absenteeism and being late to school as well. Agape reached out to the parents – and we’ve gone from 7-8 pages of absent students down to 2 pages. Their presence in our building is having an impact. Students are inspired to come to school.
