The Foundation is passionate about inspiring today's youth to make it a priority in their life to serve others. Therefore, we have created a separate award specifically to honor High School students already serving in their communities. The heart behind this award is to not only honor these students who selflessly serve, but to highlight them as an example for their fellow students. We partner with schools to help us identify specific students already fitting the Silent Servant role. The school will then help the Foundation award the Student Silent Servant in a ceremony in front of the student body. The idea is to focus on service to others, which will then encourage and inspire other students to find a way to serve others. Our hope is to inspire our future generation to serve in their communities and do so with a Silent Servant's heart.

School’s Partnership & Participation
The Foundation is currently looking for schools that will partner with the Student Silent Servant Award Program. We believe that this program will add value to any school’s culture, if not highlight the service work students are already participating in. The school will receive a nominal financial gift from the foundation that can be used as unrestricted funds. The foundation values your time and devotion to developing today’s new servant leaders.
If your school would like to participate in the Student Silent Servant Award program and nominate a student, please note the following is required of the school:
Identify students who are serving others in the community
Confirm the student and their service work comply with the programs criteria
Verify the students service work
Submit the online nomination form
If your student nominee is approved for the award, setup a time during a school assembly or chapel (if applicable) to honor the student with the Student Silent Servant Award. We request that this award not be delivered during graduation ceremonies. It is encouraged that the student's family be invited.
We ask that the school take pictures of the ceremony to be used on our website, press releases, or social media.
Although video documentation is not required, it would be greatly appreciated.
Following the award presentation, we ask for assistant in having the student recipient provide PRMF their thoughts on why they serve, why it’s important to them, and how it has changed their life.
Each school may nominate one student per year.
We highly recommend that the Student Silent Servant Award become an annual tradition that your school participates in.
