We need 25 volunteers a day through the summer to read with the elementary students participating in our program. Commit to a morning or many mornings below!
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: Anyone 13 and older can volunteer to read! Participants who are 18+ must have an up to date background check w/ 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
Childcare is available for volunteers on Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 9:40 am - 12:05 pm in the basement of the Sanctuary at Munger for children ages 0 - Pre-K. No need to sign up for childcare.
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.
