Mount Pisgah Academy, in partnership with Southern Adventist University’s ASSIST grant, has the opportunity to offer unique tuition assistance to our students. Through this service-oriented grant, our participating students are paired with elderly adults in our community in a mutually-beneficial way. Students in the ASSIST grant provide help to senior citizens by performing light housecleaning and/or yard work. They also have fun with their old friends through activities such as visiting, reading, and playing games. As the young people build generational bridges, 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. Not only are these students developing skills needed to be successful—commitment, leadership, communication and interpersonal skills, empathy, and collaboration—they are also learning the value of service.
