PROJECT TRANSFORMATION’S COVID-19 RESPONSE

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Transformation is listening to the needs of our communities, closely monitoring the guidelines of federal and local governments, and working diligently with our board of directors and community partners to plan our response to this crisis. Our decision-making process is guided by the following key principles:

  • We commit to meet the real needs in our community in the midst of this crisis, though they may be different than what we’ve encountered before.
  • We commit to stay true to PT’s values, vision, and mission even if we entertain new models and methods.
  • We commit to good stewardship of our human and financial resources, to maximize our assets in ways that benefit the whole and look to the future beyond this crisis.
  • We commit to the highest-quality programming possible for children, youth and young adults.

We believe Project Transformation is in a unique position to respond to this crisis and make a positive impact. COVID-19 has disrupted all of our lives in profound ways; it has also revealed how deeply connected we are to one another. Our modified programs still allow us to live out our core value of connectional ministry and leverage our partnerships and community assets so, collectively, we can respond with imaginative, high-quality programs and resources.

SUMMER PROGRAM RESPONSE

With the expected spread of COVID-19, we concluded that we would not be able to hold in-person programs this summer. We were deeply disappointed, and yet inspired to explore how we could live out our mission in new ways. We reached out to our families to ask them how we can most be supportive, and three needs emerged: feeding; feeling and play; and reading. And so, this summer looked different for us. Instead of in-person programs, Project Transformation provided 8-week virtual summer programming for children and youth in collaboration with PT National, the network of PT chapters, and our community partners. The summer program included:

  1. Daily distribution of supplies, grab-and-go meals, books, and other fun and educational resources at our PT site churches across Tennessee
  2. Online videos and interactive learning opportunities for children to engage from home focused on social-emotional learning, literacy, and camp-like enrichment activities
  3. Virtual vocation discernment experience for college-age young adults
