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.
