DEVELOPING, ENRICHING, AND EMPOWERING FUTURE GENERATIONS
Agape Tennis Foundation
This organization was founded to develop, enrich, and empower future generations – individuals and communities – to reach greater levels of potential and discover their purpose for the betterment of society. The Agape Tennis Foundation uses a pyramid of five stages of development to achieve their mission. ATF believes that the most basic needs of an individual must be met before they become motivated to achieve a higher level of potential and ultimately serve their community. As each stage of development is met individuals can start to fulfill their potential and purpose to a higher degree. Fulfilled and purposeful individuals shape, change, create, and sustain better communities at all levels (locally, nationally, and globally). ATF is committed to creating and developing healthy and whole individuals who will make their communities and our world a better place.
