Project Transformation uses a proven model that has been successfully replicated in four different regions of the country. We have demonstrated effectiveness in achieving three critical objectives:
1) Developing the leadership skills of college age young adults while fostering their exploration of vocational opportunities in ministry or service;
2) Building the literacy, social-emotional, and spiritual development of children from low-income families while igniting in them a lifelong love of learning;
3) Engaging the congregations of United Methodist churches in service to their community while refining their missions to be more relevant to the residents of urban and low-income neighborhoods.
College age young adults are increasingly seeking out ways to connect their purpose, faith, and work and discern their calling
4 out of 5 children from low-income backgrounds are reading behind grade level. Lack of summer learning is a key contributor to the growing achievement gap
Urban churches are becoming increasingly disconnected with the surrounding communities
