Whether you partner with us as a donor, volunteer, or both, there is a place for you at Project Transformation. If you have a passion for helping children improve their literacy and develop a love of reading, there is definitely a place for you. In fact, we couldn’t do it without you! If you feel led to encourage and support the work of young adults in their service while discerning God’s call on their lives, we need your help.

I have seen entire neighborhoods and churches revitalized by the very presence of Project Transformation programs in the community.
- Mark Orland

After many years of service, we’ve realized that most people don’t just get involved, they get hooked when they get to know our kids or college interns, and they become transformed themselves. Investing your time, talents and resources at Project Transformation will truly change someone’s life, and it might be your own. How will you connect?

We envision a world that is rooted in love, pursues the equity of all people, and amplifies God's call on every life.


Your gift means that children in our program will be nurtured by caring, young adults this summer, and that college students will have opportunities to explore their gifts and passions through this program.

Consider making a monthly contribution!

Project Transformation’s internships are for young adults who have completed at least their freshman year of college and are interested in serving others while exploring their calling. The program is designed to offer young adults a hands-on opportunity to build lasting relationships with children in low-socioeconomic areas, live in intentional community, experience cultural diversity, and explore various careers in ministry and service. As a United Methodist-affiliated organization, we offer opportunities for young adults to grown in their faith journey and discern their calling during their service.
