PFF Summer Internship and Year-Round Program
PFF students work four days per week (Monday-Thursday) and spend the fifth day (Friday) in PFF-coordinated training. This eight-hour day of training is designed to include interactive workshops, guest speakers, community service projects, and college visits. First-year students become acclimated to PFF through the Eight Sectors of Life curriculum (1. Self-Identity; 2. Spiritual; 3. Intellectual; 4. Financial; 5. Relational; 6. Emotional; 7. Professional; 8. Physical). PFF students are expected to participate in the year-round curriculum sessions focused on career exploration and personal development. In addition, students participate in our college preparation series that includes financial aid workshops, private SAT prep classes, college fairs, and assistance with college essays/scholarship applications. PFF students are also mentored on a monthly basis. PFF assists students with setting up a Virginia 529 VEST account through the Virginia College Savings Plan. This account is established exclusively for college savings. Through PFF and its business sponsors, a student's VEST savings are matched dollar for dollar (up to $2,000) at the end of the three-year, four-summer program.
