The Partnering for Eternity Program (PFE) Scholarship Program has been building relationships between mentors and students at Seventh-day Adventist academies and elementary schools since 2006. To date 2,000 kids across the United States have participated. Galt Adventist School has been participating in the PFE Program for the last 5 years.
The goal of the program is for students and mentors to create intergenerational relationships and experience the blessing of service.
In the process, students receive scholarship for the their tuition and mentors receive the gift of friendship and ability to teach their knowledge and skills to the younger generation, hopefully making an impact for years to come.

The "perfect mentor" is a person who needs a visit the most! We recommend you seek mentor matches that ease senior isolation. We also recommend seeking gender matches and alignment of hobbies and interest. In best practice examples, mentors are not even close family friends prior to PFE visits, but new relationships where both the student and mentor can grow and expand their circle together.
Galt Adventist School has a PFE Committee comprised of 5 individuals who provide 30% of the scholarship funds and the PFE Foundation provides the remaining 70%. Seven lucky students will be able to enroll in this program for this school year, 2022-2023. Four students have already signed up, leaving three openings left.
THIRTY DOLLARS TUITION CREDIT is given for each visit for up to four visits in one month (4 x $30 = $120 a month). However, the scholarship money is not the most important thing, rather it is about the relationships that are being formed.
The steps that need to be completed in order to participate, include:
