Project Transformation provides two key services:

  1. Leadership development and career/ministry exploration opportunities for college age young adults through summer and one-year service internships.
  2. Community-oriented afterschool and summer literacy and enrichment programming for children and youth in low-income neighborhoods.

Our young adult interns provide this second service, giving them authentic, hands-on experiences leading high-quality, structured programs for children and youth and equally important, learning from the children and youth in the program.

Our programs are strategically housed in churches in low-income communities. This partnership between the site churches and Project Transformation is designed so that churches can make new connections and form meaningful relationships of mutuality with families in their immediate neighborhood.

The lasting impact of our programs comes through the strong relationships that are built between the children and youth participants and our college interns.

Our college interns serve as positive role models in their lives and take an interest in the holistic growth and development of each child. Our vision is to see each of our participants graduate high school, go to college, and return to serve as college interns with a commitment to influence their communities. This is where the multiplying effects of Project Transformation will occur.
