We envision a future in which youth and young adults have equitable access to educational opportunities that will enable them to become successful community-minded adults, regardless of circumstance. At Agape Lounge we aim to supply a safe, well supervised and inclusive environment dedicated to ensure youth can acquire skills and develop relationships with positive role models. Our vision is to provide our youth with opportunities to experience activities that broaden their knowledge, enhance their self esteem and strengthen their commitments to our community. 

About the Lounge

The Place Where Love Resides.

Agape Lounge Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non for profit organization, incorporated in the state of New York.  It was founded in 2020 by Cassaundra Richardson because she realized that many dangers and challenges faced inner-city youth during their after-school hours. With that knowledge the Agape Lounge  Drop-in program was established to provide an alternative to spending this time unsupervised.

We offer a home away from home where children can participate in fun, educational and safe activities. 

Activities include, but are not limited to: 
Age-Appropriate Mentoring
Arts and Crafts
Baking and Cooking
Computer and Financial Literacy Programs
Gardening
Music Lessons
Recreational Games
Sewing
Agape Lounge also supplies youth with hot meals, hygiene supplies and access to a washer and dryer for their laundry.
