The vision of Project Transformation is to be a respected national model of service and ministry through which leaders emerge, communities change, and lives transform.
Project Transformation engages young adults in purposeful leadership and ministry by building life-impacting relationships, serving children and families, and connecting churches to underserved communities.
In all that we do, Project Transformation will:
-Encourage young adults to discover their God-given purpose,
-Value the gifts and ideas of young adults,
-Exemplify servant leadership,
-Embody Jesus' example of integrity, respect, and compassion,
-Create and strengthen meaningful relationships,
-Be faithful stewards, and
-Uphold the Wesleyan heritage of the United Methodist Church.
Project Transformation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that:
-Provides community-oriented, safe and caring summer and after-school programs for children and youth
-Offers leadership training, career exposure, and ministry exploration opportunities for young adults through summer and year-round services internships.
Since the program began in 1998:
-Approximately 850 children and youth participate in the eight-week summer program. Of those, more than 90 percent qualify for either free or reduced-price meals in public schools.
-Up to 200 children receive homework assistance, health and nutrition education, a hot meal and extracurricular activities in the after-school program each year.
-573 young adults have served as interns in the summer and after-school programs; 34 percent have come from outside Texas, representing 32 states and eight foreign countries.
-43 former interns have enrolled in seminary, eight currently serve as staff in United Methodist Churches.
-Over 70 percent of the interns either work or volunteer in some form of ministry.
-Over 150 United Methodist churches from the North Texas Conference, as well as churches from out of state, have offered in-kind, financial and/or volunteer support
-More than 1,500 people volunteer their time during the summer – doing such activities as reading with children, providing special activities, and preparing and serving dinner to the interns. Over 3,000 hours are spent each year reading one-on-one with children
