One way that PSAA promotes the concept of connection and involvement in our community, is through the Assist Program that is managed through Southern Adventist University.
The Assist program and connects PSAA students with local senior citizens. Students will meet with their mentor for at least an hour once a week. After each visit the student will fill out a short form/write a reflection about their visit, which usually takes less than 5 minutes. After completing the reflection, the money will be deposited into their student account.
There are many benefits to this program, listed below are a few ways that it has impacted our students:
This program is fun, simple and is changing and improving the lives of both the mentors and students.
