Dover First Christian School, in partnership with Southern Adventist University’s PFE grant
program, has the opportunity to offer unique tuition assistance to our students. Through this
service-oriented scholarship program, our participating students are paired with elderly adults
in our community in a mutually-beneficial way.
Students in the PFE program, along with their parents, bring joy to the lives of senior citizens
through fun activities such as visiting, reading, and playing games. When appropriate, they may
also provide light housework. As the young people build generational bridges and learn the
value of service, they also benefit from the wisdom and mentorship of the older adults. In the
process, their time together helps finance the student’s Christian education.
