Project Transformation provides two key services:

  1. Leadership development and vocational exploration opportunities for young adults through paid summer internships.
  2. Community-oriented summer programs for children focused on literacy and social-emotional health

Our young adultsĀ  provide this second service, giving them authentic, hands-on experiences leading high-quality, structured programs for children and, equally as important, learning from the children in the program.

Our programs are strategically housed in churches in neighborhoods that are under-resourced. This partnership between the host churches and Project Transformation is designed so that churches can make new connections and form meaningful relationships of mutuality with families in their immediate neighborhood.

The lasting impact of our programs comes through the strong relationships that are built between the children and youth participants and our college interns.

Young adults serve as positive role models in their lives and take an interest in the holistic growth and development of each child. Our goal is for our participants to graduate high school, hopefully go to college, and then return to serve as young adults with Project Transformation. As children grow up in our program, attend college, and return with a commitment to influence their communities, the multiplying effects of Project Transformation occur.
