Dear Alumnus,


Welcome to the fall edition of the PFEW Alumni News


This past summer was record breaking! The PFEW total applications number (received for a year) shattered  last year's record with almost 3,242 students applying to take the "PFEW Journey". And by the end of PFEW 2014, we graduated our largest class ever with 2,106 students joining the "PFEW family"! 


Below you will find some information about our record breaking summer along with some photos. You will also find informaton on how to better stay in touch with the PFEW staff, as well as ways you can help them.  


We are excited to be able to expand the PFEW family each year and look forward to keeping in touch with our Alumni over the years.



The PFEW Staff

We Want To Hear From You!
Thanks to Kyle Lisicki for sharing the above photo with us.

We are currently looking for testimonials and pictures for future newsletters and e-newsletters.


If you are a current graduate, we'd love to hear how you enjoyed your PFEW experience. If it's been a few years since you attended PFEW, that's ok! We would love to have a "where are you now?" to share how PFEW impacted your future.  And if you have pictures of yourself while you were participating in PFEW, we want to see those too! 


All photos or testimonals can be sent to

There is nothing we love more than to hear from Alumni!

Oh my gosh. This, was just the most amazing experience I could of ever had. Our company "Optimus" won week 4 in Penn Tech this last week. And, I couldn't of asked to have a better week. I love all of you guys, everybody who went, and all of the staff. It means a lot to me to have the mature, and experienced to come and guide us to our future lives, to our future goals. And I have no number of thanks to be able to give the PFEW Foundation. Thank you GO TEAM OPTIMUS!

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up but I'm glad I did. This week has been one of the best weeks of my life so far and I wouldn't trade this week for anything. There is nothing I would ever trade for this week. I made some great new friends and had a great new experience. So thank you. Thank you everyone who made this all possible

Staying Involved
Want to Give Back to PFEW?


Please share your stories, PFEW memories  & successes with our staff. We are always looking for different Alumni to feature in our E-letters & newsletters. Maybe you could be next?



Each summer hundreds of students take the PFEW journey & each of these students are in need of "scholarship" money. No amount is too small & every penny helps a deserving student get to the program.



Help us spread the word at your school or Alma Mater. If you know of a teacher, counselor, administrator or club advisor who might be interested in PFEW, we'd love to send them our promotional materials! Feel free to contact Amber to get more information to share.
