Agape provides a supervised, safe haven in the after-school programs at a time of day when teen crime and teen pregnancy spike among unsupervised youths. Students and mentors are often paired in elementary school and the relationship may last through high school graduation. The average Agape high school senior has been enrolled at Agape for almost six years, offering a remarkable opportunity to influence behavior and perspective. This is important because a study done by the Heritage Foundation in Washington DC found that for children living in high crime, low income areas, 90% will become juvenile delinquents, while less than 10% of children in stable homes in low crime areas will ever have a criminal record.
