Project Transformation’s summer day camp programs for elementary and middle school students focus on enriching the mind, body, and spirit. We place a unique focus on improving literacy and social-emotional development. Project Transformation operates summer day camps serving children grades 1-9 in high-need neighborhoods in San Antonio, the Rio Grande Valley, and the greater Austin area. Each day, children read one-on-one with community volunteers and participate in activity-based literacy intervention. Children also participate in daily enrichment activities including recreational play and exercise, creative arts, and interaction with our young adult interns and community volunteers, who inspire and encourage children daily to make responsible, sound decisions.
Project Transformation’s after-school Reading Buddies serves children grades K-5 in all three geographies.
Reading All Stars
Project Transformation Rio Texas (PT) is committed to supporting children in their love of reading and academic growth. Reading Allstars virtual sessions for K-5 take place on Zoom. Families choose one 30-minute session for their child to participate in weekly. Once registered, Project Transformation will send the Zoom information to each family, and the Zoom information will be the same for every session. During Reading Allstars virtual sessions volunteers listen to participants read, ask questions, and offer strategies for reading help. Volunteers and the PT staff work to help participants maintain or improve their reading level and love of literacy throughout the school year. The Reading Allstars virtual program runs from September 2022, through May 2023.
Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:30p-5:30p
All Project Transformation volunteers are background checked and attend training before volunteering. Two PT staff members will be on every Zoom session to ensure the safety of the participants and to offer assistance to the volunteers.
