This reading camp helps kids maintain their reading levels during the summer and learn more about God and his love for them. We need volunteers to simply read alongside the kids participating in Project Transformation and show them love and support this summer!
Sign up for any day or time slot Monday-Thursday from June 4-July 30. It take just a little time to help make a difference in these kids’ lives!
Note: Kids as young as the 6th grade can serve, and if they're 17 or younger no background check or training is required! Everyone (18+) who comes to read must have an up to date background check with Munger or HPUMC and must also have gone through an online abuse prevention training called Ministry Safe. You will be contacted once you sign up if either are needed.
Munger Place Church will be hosting 11 college-age interns and almost 100 neighborhood K-5th graders. The interns will be leading the kids in lots of fun Bible studies, arts & crafts, and reading enrichment.
One of Project Transformation's primary goals is to help children in underserved urban areas maintain or improve their reading level over their summer break. We need 25 people per day to serve during the seven week summer program by reading one-on-one with the kids (that's 700 people throughout the entire summer!).
Note: There will be childcare available for volunteers on Tuesdays from 10 am - noon.
About Project Transformation
Project Transformation engages young adults in purposeful leadership in ministry, supports underserved children and families, and connects churches with communities in need. They do all of this by remembering their three C's: Children, College students and Churches. Since their founding in 1998, this ministry has been addressing three unique challenges with one program: the academic, physical and spiritual needs of children living in low-income communities, providing meaningful ministry and leadership exploration for college students, and revitalizing struggling urban churches.
They meet these three challenges by harnessing the creative energy and ideas of 100 college-age young adults each year, who live in intentional community, and plan and implement free summer day camps and after-school programs for approximately 1000 children and youth in various underserved neighborhoods. The programs are held at United Methodist Churches located in the heart of low-income neighborhoods, thereby helping those churches connect in meaningful ways with their communities.
Children-College Students-Churches. This is a win-win-win formula, but relationships are at the heart of everything Project Transformation does. It is through relationships that lives are transformed.
