I was recently seen as a patient at the Agape Clinic. While I was waiting, there was an orientation happening & during the presentation I heard that there was a high need for interpreters. As I will be entering senior year, it is required for a graduate to perform community service for a set amount of time & I would love to volunteer my time and skill here at Agape Clinic as an interpreter & help such a helping clinic who helped me whenever I was in need.
Agape Clinic's work would not be possible without the help of our outstanding volunteers. We are honored to work with people interested in giving back to the community and those in need and we would love to work with you.

We are so excited that you are interested in volunteering at Agape. We have lots of wonderful opportunities to utilize your skills. Some of these opportunities include:
General volunteers undertake a large number of important administrative duties, including front desk support (call logs, office duties), medical record scanning, pharmacy (inventory management, expired medication disposal), North Texas Food Bank Mobile Pantry food distribution.
Medical Assistant 1:
Medical Assistant 1 is a role that supports clinic operations. Duties include measuring and recording vital signs, printing medication labels, proper cleaning of patient rooms, patient education (glucose monitor setup and demo, and organizing and preparing documents), and point of care testing such as Dfs & A1c, Hgb, and UA &HcG.
Medical Assistant 2:
Medical Assistant 2 support clinic operations in a more hands on way. MA2 may take part in procedures such as intramuscular injections, ear irrigations, EKGs, procedure preparation and assistance in toenail extractions, InD, and cervical and anal paps.
Interpreters play a crucial role at Agape. Nearly 65% of our patients speak Spanish as their primary language. Interpreters provide verbal and written translations in patient rooms and provide front desk support.
Medical scribes help our providers document patient encounters in our electronic medical record and may assume the MA role as needed.
North Texas Food Bank:
Access to fresh fruits and vegetables is a challenge for many people in North Texas! If you volunteer at the NTFB Mobile Pantry you will be asked to prepare and distribute bags of food. You may also be asked to translate for Spanish speakers who visit the food truck.
Throughout the year, Agape has special events that volunteers can assist with. Duties may be assigned depending on the event.
