Partnering for Eternity - Service and Scholarship Program
Since 2006, Southern Adventist University has had the unique opportunity to manage a one of a kind grant that creates a local, service-oriented student labor program for academies and a scholarship program for elementary students that pairs participating students with elderly adults in their community. Students participating in the grant-funded program perform light housecleaning and/or yard work, visit, read, play games, assist with planned facility events, along with many other responsibilities. These activities benefit the older adults with daily living and quality of life while also providing students an excellent opportunity to appreciate the value of service, foster positive mutual relationships with the elderly, and help with financing their Christian education. Students who are eligible for the program visit a mentor for one hour a week and receive $25.00 for each visit toward their tuition fee.
