Project Transformation Pacific Northwest began organizing in early 2016 when the United Methodist Church brought together a Project Transformation alumna with two former site church leaders, who had relocated from Tennessee and North Texas respectively. As conversations spread and excitement from local church and community leaders increased, this led to a desire to bring the program to the Portland/Vancouver area in the Pacific Northwest. With support from Project Transformation National, the Project Transformation Pacific Northwest Chapter held their inaugural summer program in 2017 with two sites and several partner churches in the greater Vancouver area. 12 young adult interns, around 80 children, and countless volunteers came together for eight weeks throughout this successful first summer. Now firmly established, our vision is to expand the program to other parts of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho as we continue to foster support from local churches and community partners across the Pacific Northwest. We hope you’ll join us on that journey!
