Volunteer Opportunities

There are numerous ways to connect and get involved with Project Transformation Arkansas!

Our program for elementary school children operates at two site churches, Lakeside UMC and St. Luke UMC, Monday – Thursday. This day camp requires a hundred volunteers to operate! You can get involved in the following ways:


Assist in coding and sorting our library books: Volunteer to help us expand our reading library! Books are housed at St. James UMC in Pine Bluff, but we will travel to you. Contact the office to schedule a book coding party!


*Read one-on-one with children: Reading volunteers listen to each child read for 30 minutes. After reading, the pair engages in discussion and comprehension activities about the story. The reading component takes place at our day camp locations on Monday-Thursday from 9:50-12:00 (LUMC) and 10:30-12:00 (SLUMC). Register with your congregation or sign up as an individual by emailing: smeadors@ptarkansas.org.

*Bring and share dinner with college-age interns (Sunday – Thursday evenings- excluding Wednesdays) You are invited to bring and share a meal with the 10 college students who serve in Project Transformation summer programs. Our young adult interns are eager to share their camp stories with you! Meals will be taken or delivered to White Hall UMC. To provide a meal register HERE.

Family Fun Night Provide a meal for our children and families (approximately 100). This is fantastic opportunity to be engaged with all of the pieces of our ministry. They are our favorite events and you won’t want to miss it! Email Sam Meadors, smeadors@ptarkansas.org, to schedule.
