Meet Kristin! She is an intern for elementary children at Chapel Hill UMC in Dallas, TX. Follow her through her day to learn more about what our interns do in a day at Project Transformation!
Project Transformation’s programs for children and youth are interconnected with the service of our young adult interns. We provide high-quality, structured after-school and summer day camp programs for underserved children and youth. We focus on developing the mind, body, and spirit of participants and help them reach their full potential.
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 interns serve as positive role models in their lives and take an interest in the holistic growth and development of each child. Interns have high expectations for these children and youth to not only succeed academically, but to give back to their communities. Our program requires our participants to plan and implement service projects in their community, so that they do not see themselves as recipients of service, but can learn to be proactive in making a positive impact in their community.
Our goal is for our participants to graduate high school, hopefully go to college, and then return to serve as college intern with Project Transformation. As children and youth grow up in our programs, attend college, and return with a commitment to influence their communities, the multiplying effects of Project Transformation will occur. We have seen this dream realized in the past three years, as ten of our former participants have graduated from high school, enrolled in college, and now serve as interns in their former sites. Through the continued relationships between our participants and our college interns, we look forward to welcoming back many more former participants as interns.
