There are numerous ways to connect and get involved with Project Transformation Indiana!
Our program for elementary school children operates at three site churches in the Greater Indianapolis Area, Monday – Thursday. This day camp requires hundreds of volunteers to operate! We are grateful for volunteers! This summer we are using a user-friendly volunteer platform called GivePulse. With this new platform, you will be able to see all the days we need reading volunteers and dinners provided and you can sign up to volunteer based on your availability! You can get involved in the following ways:
Read one-on-one with children
Reading volunteers listen to a child read and discuss the story with them in a positive and encouraging environment. Reading takes place at each summer program location, Mondays through Thursdays from 9:30am-12:00 pm.
Our summer programs begin June 10th and end July 30th at North UMC, Cumberland UMC, and St. Andrew UMC.
Project Transformation partners with churches to provide reading volunteers at our programs for entire weeks during the summer. If you are a member of one of these partner churches, look for your church’s specific week on our GivePulse page as well as “empty” or undesignated weeks. If you are not a member of one of these churches, please refrain from signing up during those weeks. Thank you for your help in making sure our kids have someone to read with all summer!!

Bring dinner to eat with the college interns Dinners are a key part of community life for Project Transformation Interns during the summer. Sitting down for a shared meal and conversation is a great way to build relationships with our college students. Dinners are every Sunday through Thursday night at 6 pm at University Heights UMC, beginning June 2nd and ending July 29.

The opportunities to get involved are limited only by your interests! Contact Sarah Fuquay at firstname.lastname@example.org if there are other ways you might be interested in volunteering your time with our kids. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
