Teens with Dreams – Agape Development’s aim is to provide individualized academic, career, behavior, and life skills counseling to teens in middle and high school. We 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.
Taming the Hulk – Anger management course for teens. Alternating weeks for guys/girls.
Too Hype Teen Night – (THTN) – Too Hype Teen Night is a discipleship program for young teens in our neighborhood to gain a better understanding of the Bible and how it applies to their lives. One night a week, we have a time for these teens to gather in a youth group environment where they spend time eating, fellowshipping, worshiping, discussing hot topics, and digging into the Word together. THTN also provides monthly field trips and other events for the teens to bond together and have fun. Grades 6-12
Getting Ahead – Participants work in groups to examine the impact of poverty on themselves and their communities, exploring the world through the lens of economic class. The aim is to provide a safe, agenda-free learning environment where adults reflect on and examine their lives, investigate new information relevant to them, assess their resources, make plans for the future, and offer ideas for building a prosperous community.
Serves: Adults 18+
Adult Allies – Allies is mutually beneficial to graduates and their “allies.” Getting Ahead graduates have much to teach about their neighborhood and what they know and have learned about poverty. While Allies can help them network and work on financial goals, we want both graduates and Allies to hold each other accountable spiritually. The commitment required is to meet weekly with their partner for 6 months. These relationships become close, life-long friendships, which foster more stable lives for everyone involved.
