Project Transformation Pacific Northwest does not discriminate against eligible participants because of such factors as race, color, national origin, sex, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or political beliefs.

Specifics

The priority deadline for applications is February 1; but don’t worry if you miss the deadline, we accept applications on a rolling basis until all of our summer staff is hired! The dates for this service experience are June 12 – August 12, 2019. This includes one week of pre-program training and seven weeks of day camp with participants.

  • Young adults will live in community in housing provided through Project Transformation. Dinners will be provided from Sunday through Thursday evenings.
  • During their summer of service, interns cannot have commitments outside of Project Transformation, such as summer school or a part-time job.
  • Sunday through Thursdays, interns must attend nightly dinners that are prepared by partner churches in order to share the summer service experience with partnering volunteers. One night per week, the interns participate in a group worship or reflection time.
  • On Fridays, the interns explore vocations in ministry and service through field trips and dialogue with lay and ordained leadership of various partnering non-profit organizations, businesses, and United Methodist institutions.
  • At least once during the summer, the intern may speak to one of Project Transformation’s partner churches about the summer service experience – this could be to a Sunday school group, the congregation, youth group, or other community partner.

In many ways working with Project Transformation in the summer program exceeds participating in a summer job and crosses into a summer life. The time expectations can be great, but the potential for personal rewards that come from this kind of commitment are even greater. While much is expected of each intern, much is given in return in the form of love from the kids, support and fun from living in a community, and the energy created by exploring your own personal potential to impact the world around you.
