Afterschool Opportunities

Project Transformation offers after-school programming for elementary students at three of our Nashville area site churches Monday through Thursday (Antioch UMC, Matthews Memorial UMC, and Trinity Community Commons). There are numerous ways to serve:

Help with homework! Project Transformation is looking for caring volunteers to offer one-on-one homework and reading tutoring. We ask volunteers to consider committing to one day per week. All volunteers are asked to participate in a one-hour orientation session prior to service. Read our Afterschool Homework Buddy Volunteer Description(Sept-May, Mon-Thurs, 4-5:15p) 

Provide a dinner for our year-round fellows! Calling all Chefs! Three diverse young adults from across the country serve in Project Transformation’s afterschool program. Each Sunday evening, they gather for a community meal and we invite churches, Sunday school classes, and circles to provide this meal at their community house on the campus of Scarritt Bennett Center. This is a great opportunity to serve and get to know young people who are really making a difference!  (Sept-May, Sunday evenings, 6-7p)

Serve a meal at a Family Fun Night! Family Fun Nights are a great volunteer opportunity for groups! They happen twice a semester during the school year and each month during the summer at each of our sites. This is an evening of fun for the children and parents in our programs. Volunteers are needed to provide meals and assist with activities. (Sept-May, Thursday evenings, 5:30-7p)
