WHY WE DO IT
Through Agape Sports Community Services, it is our goal to work within the community and give under-served children the opportunity to participate in sports, usually not accessible because of socio-economic barriers, transportation, or family dynamics. These activities build self-esteem, confidence and fosters an overall well-being. It is also shown to help children excel academically and improve social skills. Participation teaches children the benefits of goal-setting and practice.

STRATEGIC NON-PROFIT PARTNERS
Agape Sports Community Services strives to provide sports-related programs to combat mental illness, addiction, disease and address other complex issues by partnering with a variety of not-for-profit organizations.
Agape initiated meetings with its not-for-profit partners in the community to gain insight on their ground experience regarding the needs of the parents and children within the community. Agape will also meet with the major employers, Social service organizations, and Public and Private learning institutions in order to learn the needs within the community.
Simultaneously with this research, Agape will strategically market communities, parents and local organizations to gain feedback from them on what they view are the services that can
best assist the youth within the community. All of the gathered information will enable Agape to start to implement programs and deliver assistance. Some of the programs will of course be modified with experience depending on utilization and acceptance by the children and their parents.
