Help us welcome Briana Jasso, our new Site & Family Engagement Program Coordinator! 🎉

"I first came to PT at 14 years old, introduced by my grandma who was the cook at former site Oak Cliff UMC. I fell in love with the program by high school, learning and experiencing that with intentionality and an open heart, transformation does happen through relationships. Eventually returning to become a member I experienced challenges, growth, and so much joy. I couldn't stay away. Today I am beyond grateful and excited to connect with and serve alongside the amazing people that make up PTNT including the staff, members, families, and churches. I look forward to more growth and more transformation."

General information

Vision 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. Mission 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. Values 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, -Expect excellence, -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. Services 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. Impact 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
