Over the last several weeks, Project Transformation has listened to the needs of our communities, closely monitored the guidelines of federal and local governments, and worked diligently with our board of directors, our network of PT chapters, and community partners to plan our response to the COVID-19 crisis. Our decision-making process for the 2020 Summer Program is guided by the following key principles:
  • We commit to meet the real needs in our community in the midst of this crisis, though they may be different than what we’ve encountered before.
  • We commit to stay true to PT’s values, mission, and vision, even if we entertain new models and methods.
  • We commit to good stewardship of our human and financial resources, to maximize our assets in ways that benefit the whole and look to the future beyond this crisis.
  • We commit to the highest-quality programming possible for children, youth and young adults.

In light of COVID-19, Project Transformation has made the difficult decision to offer virtual programming and in-person food/supply distribution instead of our usual in-person summer day camp for summer 2020. Please read our full press release for details regarding how we have worked to adapt our program model for this summer to meet the greatest needs of our community.

This was a difficult decision for us and as we have worked to communicate this new model to our families and stakeholders, we crafted this video to communicate that though we will be apart this summer, we stand together as a national network with our communities in relational ministry. Summer is not cancelled.

Please visit our website to view our “COVID-19 Response Page” for continued updates and to learn how you can be involved as we launch the summer 2020 program.

And finally, we are excited to announce that Project Transformation’s National Board has collectively offered up a challenge grant of $25,000 in support of PT National’s Giving Tuesday Now Campaign. From now through Tuesday, May 5th at midnight every donation of any size will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000!

This is an extraordinary opportunity for PT National to receive $50,000 in critical funding to help us further our mission and serve our communities, but we need your help!

Please consider making a gift to Project Transformation National today!
