Agape Youth Development and Support Services were among a number of Westside youth organizations to receive a 15,000 award from TCF Bank.

The TCF Youth Program Quality Awards, which were handed out earlier this month, were given to agencies and organizations involved with youth development.

TCF Bank has made a 3-year, $240,000 investment in quality youth programs. Each year, five youth development agencies will be awarded up to $15,000 each to support their work with teens. This is the first year for the awards.

“The Youth Quality Awards help support TCF Bank’s mission to serve and mentor Chicago’s youth,” said TCF Bank Executive Vice President Mark Dillon at a Sept. 14 ceremony. “We congratulate the winners and we look forward participating in this program for the next couple of years.”

Agape Youth Development and Support Services is located at 320 S. Spalding, serving youth in Austin, Garfield Park and greater Westside. For more information about Agape contact Program Administrator Joy Willis at 773-638-0966.
