Teens with Dreams – 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.
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. Schools we expect to be picking up from: Yes Prep, Beatrice Mays, Lamar, Yates, and Core Academy.
Try It Out/In-Kind – Tuesday – 4:45 – Provide a teen friendly snack and stay to observe Teens with Dreams so you can decide if this is a program you would like to commit to.
