There are numerous ways to connect and get involved with Project Transformation Indiana!
Our program for elementary school children operates at 2 host churches in the Indianapolis area, Monday – Thursday, and requires many volunteers to operate! We are grateful for our volunteers! This summer we are using a volunteer platform called GivePulse. With this platform, you will be able to see all the days we need reading volunteers and meals provided and you can sign up to volunteer based on your availability! You can get involved in the following ways:
Reading volunteers listen to a child read and discuss the story with them in a positive and encouraging environment. You will be paired with a child for 30 minutes and then after a few minutes of transition, paired with a different child for the final 30 minutes. If it is your first time volunteering this summer, please arrive at 9:30 am for orientation. If it is not your first time volunteering this year, please arrive at 9:50 am. Volunteers will be done by 11:30 am. We do need a current background check on file before working with the kids, which you can obtain through your church, or we can run it for you, although we will ask for a $10 donation to cover the cost. We also ask that you are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to work one-on-one with children.

Our young adults engage in spiritual development, vocational discernment, and program planning while living in an intentional community together. Sitting down for a shared meal and conversation is an important part of this relationship-building. Providing a meal is a great opportunity for small groups to volunteer together and you are invited to sit down and eat with our interns so you can get to know them. Dinner takes place at North UMC (38th and Meridian St.) at 6 pm on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays this summer.
Support us by visiting our Amazon list or sharing it with friends! There you will find books and supplies needed to make a fun-filled summer for our children. Donate and make our wishes come true!
Whether or not you are able to serve directly with PT, we invite you to join us in surrounding our children, interns, families, churches, and volunteers in prayer.
The opportunities to get involved are limited only by your interests! Contact Costeena Weathersby at email@example.com if there are other ways you might be interested in volunteering your time. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
