Whether you partner with us as a donor, volunteer, or both, there is a place for you at Project Transformation. If you have a passion for helping children improve their literacy and develop a love of reading, there is definitely a place for you. In fact, we couldn’t do it without you! If you feel led to encourage and support the work of young adults in their service while discerning God’s call on their lives, we need your help.

I have seen entire neighborhoods and churches revitalized by the very presence of Project Transformation programs in the community.
- Mark Orland

After many years of service, we’ve realized that most people don’t just get involved, they get hooked when they get to know our kids or young adults, and they become transformed themselves. Investing your time, talents and resources at Project Transformation will truly change someone’s life, and it might be your own. How will you connect?

Contact Sam Meadors at samantha.meadors@arumc.org for more information about how you can connect with Project Transformation Arkansas!

We envision a world that is rooted in love, pursues the equity of all people, and amplifies God's call on every life.


Your gift means that children in our program will be nurtured by caring, young adults during the summer, and that college students will have opportunities to explore their gifts and passions through this program.

Dinners are a key part of community life for Project Transformation’s young adults during the summer!  Sitting down for a shared meal and conversation is a great way to build relationships.  We appreciate your gift of providing a meal for our young adults and invite you to sit and share the meal with them if you are delivering it. Once programming begins, dinners will be every Sunday-Thursday at 6:30pm. The location of our dinner is not yet determined, but will be at a Pine Bluff church or UAPB campus.

Reading volunteers read one-on-one with children for 3, 40-minute rotations, Monday-Thursday. We appreciate any time you are able to spend reading with our kids, whether it is for one day, one week, or every week. If it is your first time volunteering, please arrive at 9:30am for orientation. If it is not your first time volunteering, please arrive at 9:45am. Volunteers will be done at approximately 12:00pm. We do need a current background check on file if you are working with our kids, which you can obtain through your church.

To learn more about the volunteer opportunities or if you have any questions, please contact Sam Meadors, samantha.meadors@arumc.org.

Project Transformation’s internships are for young adults who have completed at least their freshman year of college and are interested in serving others while exploring their calling. The program is designed to offer young adults a hands-on opportunity to build lasting relationships with children and families, experience intentional community, learn in a diverse cultural and socio-economic environment, and explore various careers in ministry and service. As a United Methodist-affiliated organization, we offer opportunities for young adults to grown in their faith journey and discern their calling during their service.

To apply to be a young adult leader this summer contact Rev. Meadors at samantha.meadors@arumc.org.
