Project Transformation uses a proven model that has been successfully replicated in four different regions of the country. We have demonstrated effectiveness in achieving three critical objectives:

1) Developing the leadership skills of college age young adults while fostering their exploration of vocational opportunities in ministry or service;

2) Building the literacy, social-emotional, and spiritual development of children from low-income families while igniting in them a lifelong love of learning;

3) Engaging the congregations of United Methodist churches in service to their community while refining their missions to be more relevant to the residents of urban and low-income neighborhoods.

THE CHALLENGE


College Students
College age young adults are increasingly seeking out ways to connect their purpose, faith, and work and discern their calling

Children
4 out of 5 children from low-income backgrounds are reading behind grade level. Lack of summer learning is a key contributor to the growing achievement gap

Churches
Urban churches are becoming increasingly disconnected with the surrounding communities

Project Transformation taught me how to lead well and how to love well. It gave me a passion for underserved communities. Ultimately, PT taught me to have a holistic view of what my calling is.
