March 2015 - Agape House Heals

Learning Programs Broaden Horizons

Agape House is participating in a project with International Little Artists (ILA), a Walworth-based foundation that has created a virtual global place for children around the world to share their messages through art. The project allows the students to exchange inspirational art and messages including painting, poetry and music, with youth around the world. The project was recently kicked off with a workshop led by ILA founder, Lucie Hake. Agape House School teaching assistant Tina Dillman will travel to India this week with a student on a ten-day mission trip to deliver art and music created by the students from the school and other Wisconsin ILA members to share with children.

ILA works in partnership with global organizations to personally deliver art through the work of missionaries, teachers and medical teams who are traveling abroad for their own missions and reasons. Future components of the ILA project include art exhibits, fundraising and parties to increase awareness, participation and resources.

Students Visit State Capitol

Eight Agape House School students and their chaperones visited Rep. Amy Loudenbeck and Sgt. at Arms Anne Tonnon Byers at the state capitol on March 13 to learn about their roles as females in the state government. Sgt. at Arms Tonnon Byers spoke to the girls about her responsibilities and what it’s like to be a female in her position. Rep. Loudenbeck shared her life’s journey to the position she now holds and spoke of her passion for helping girls and women. Rep. Loudenbeck also outlined some of the legislative efforts she is involved in that will address challenges facing girls and women in Wisconsin. Rep. Loudenbeck offered encouragement to the girls and spoke enthusiastically about Agape House and School, which she has visited in the past. The students received a private tour of the capitol building, exploring both the Senate and Assembly chambers and learned about the building’s history.
