Gateway Mentor/Resident Coach

link buy coursework Gateway – The Gateway Houses are part of a residential program to help 18-25 year olds make the transition to healthy adulthood by assisting with housing, utilities, food, and transportation while also providing counseling, job preparation, and guidance in continued education. The goal is to assist young adults on the path to becoming independent healthy adults who are not only able to support themselves through gainful employment, but are also able to support their community through volunteering, church membership, and active community involvement. The Gateway houses are also available for those young adults who may be in college or are recent graduates who have an interest or desire in urban ministry and would like to gain some experience while living in community. Several steps are in place to monitor the progress of Gateway residents. Each participant is assigned an accountability meeting every two weeks where goals and progress are discussed and managed. Twice a year evaluations are held for each participant to determine if pre-stated goals and objectives have been accomplished and if the participant is ready to transition to independence on their own.

While at Agape we do have systems in place to help with these different things, we often need more manpower to affectively help a new resident accomplish these things in a timely manner. A new resident coach would be a volunteer that organizes a team to help in these different areas. They would have a group of volunteers at their church organized into the three different teams that they would be in contact with. When a new resident moves in, they will work with the Gateway Director and new resident to construct a needs based plan. The Resident coach will then assemble a team of volunteers for the resident’s unique needs. The teams would be working on as needed basis. The 3 different teams include:

  1. I.D. Team- This team needs to be familiar with or willing to be trained in helping people get all forms of I.D.’s: birth certificates, social security cards, and Texas I.D.’s. They would need to build a working relationship with Operation I.D. All team members would need to have availability during the day on weekdays, and have the ability to help transport new residents to different locations in this
  2. Job Searching Team- This team would need to be trained on Agape’s job searching procedures. This team works closely with our staff member who specializes in job searches. They would be responsible for helping coach in resume building, positive job searching techniques, and transporting new residents to different job searching locations. This can be a frustrating time for a new resident, especially if they have a record, so a team of cheerleaders is appreciated. All team members would need to have availability during the day on weekdays.
  3. School Registration Team- This team would need to be familiar with or willing to be trained in helping people with financial aid and application processes of local colleges. They would help new residents fill out FAFSA’s, discern financial aid, register for classes, etc. All team members would need to have availability during the day on weekdays, and have the ability to help transport new residents to different locations in this process.

  1. ‘New Resident Welcome Kit’-Preparing and delivering these kits when new residents

move in. Items would include Bible, towel set, sheet set, and 2 weeks’ worth of

  1. Graduating Resident Assistance– Almost all graduates leave and make their own new

home. They need everything to start this home, like dishes, cookware, furniture, etc.

Not all of these should be new; gently used items are ok. It would also be helpful to provide the graduate with the basic cleaning supplies and spices for cooking. It would be great to have this ready for a resident as they move out.

Getting Ahead/Adult Allies Childcare

Getting Ahead is both a workbook and an experience. It’s based on Philip DeVol’s Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-by-World: Building Your Resources for a Better Life. Participants, called Investigators, work in groups to examine the impact of poverty on themselves and their communities and to explore the world through the lens of economic class. The aim is to provide a safe, agenda-free learning environment where adults can reflect on and examine their lives, investigate new information that is relevant to them, assess their own resources, make plans for their own future stories, and offer ideas for building a prosperous community.  The unique part of this experience is that it puts the learning and growing directly in the hands of the investigators. They are empowered to seek for themselves rather than being lectured. Getting Ahead will meet weekly on Wednesday evenings this fall and will provide free childcare and dinner for the investigators and their families. Serves: Adults 18+

Be a Dream Team Guide!

Agape Development’s teen after-school program will begins it second year with it’s new location on Paris Street. Our aim is to provide individualized academic, career, behavior, and life skills counseling to teens in middle and high school. To this end, we will begin a commitment with a small group of teens to journey with them through their school year, assisting them in setting and achieving their goals.

High Impact

Dream Team Guide – Minimum twice a month for one semester – Tuesdays – 4:30-6:30 Commitment is semester-long, but we hope that most of our Partners will go the distance with their teen for the entire school year. Volunteers will be partnered with a teen to discuss their spiritual, educational, and life goals, and then empower the teen to take action towards building a plan with detailed steps that are both short term and long term.  Volunteer will work with the teen to make progress on these goals. Teens will have ownership, think of yourself as a guide – you have the resources, tools and experience to share but will let the teen develop a plan for themselves as they engage in research on the computer and at our college or job site visits during the school year.

Drivers – Tuesdays August-May – Many of the teens in our program attend schools outside our district. Help our teens attend Teens with Dreams by picking them up from school and dropping them off at Agape Development.
