The program gives teens an opportunity to develop skills and references for college applications in a friendly and safe environment, while helping residents experience an Abundant Life through activities and visits.
Applications and parental permission slips (see above) are received up to June 1st. Teens will receive a certificate of completion for serving a minimum of three hours per week for a minimum of six weeks between June and August.
The applicant must be available for an interview, TB testing and the Summer Teen Orientation program prior to acceptance. Program size is limited.

Bill Fugate was attracted to Passavant Community, in part, because of its proximity to the town of Zelienople. “I fell in love with the town. Its very friendly, easy to walk to and has a lot of conveniences.”
He also appreciates Passavant's willingness to accommodate his existing hobbies, allowing him to erect an amateur radio antenna behind his home, and creating a wood shop and metal-working forge for residents campus-wide to enjoy.
From the time June Morrison moved to Passavant Community, she was encouraged to begin teaching Bridge classes. She now teaches three classes a week to both Passavant residents and community members.
“Whatever you want to do around here, they are going to help you do it in any way they can. Everybody here wants us to have the most abundant lives possible. That feeling permeates the campus.”
June has also written and published her first book, Are You Smarter Than Your Dog?, which she sells locally and on the internet.
