Agape works with students in public, private and test prep schools to provide public speaking and debate programs.

Since 2008, Agape Leaders Institute has worked with public, private, and test prep schools to provide public speaking and debating programs. Agape Leaders Institute has been working closely with schools to establish a debate program where students are able to receive intensive preparation for the coming competition season through instruction, training, and coaching. Debate is an excellent vehicle for extra-curricular learning, and has been used in many settings to enhance and reinforce important concepts learned in the classroom.
