I've absolutely loved working at the Clinic and it's given me an amazing opportunity to connect with my community. Because of my experiences here, I've decided to pursue a pre-medical track in the hopes of one day working as a physician in a clinic such as this one."
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 to those in need.
The Agape Clinic is unique as the opportunity to volunteer means several things. An Agape volunteer can assist the clinic by offering administrative support, such as scanning and filing documents and medical charts, dictating or scribing for doctors during patient visits, while/and assisting the provider during patient visits.
Another valuable way to volunteer with the Agape Clinic is by becoming an Agape Ambassador. These are volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, and nurses who provide clinical care to patients pro bono and complement the Agape Clinic staff. Through our Agape Ambassadors and volunteers, Agape is able to offer quality healthcare unconditionally while keeping the patient cost nominal.

We are so thankful that you want to help. We cannot wait to see you back at the Clinic. In the meantime, there are lots of things that you can do to stay engaged!

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.
