Project Transformation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 1998 to provide two primary services: (1) Socially conscious leadership training and ministry exploration for college-aged young adults; and (2) Academic, health, spiritual, and recreational programming for children, youth, and teens in the North Texas area.
Project Transformation provides the first service by offering young adults (PT Corps Members) who are interested in service a one-year or ten-week service opportunity through our after-school and summer programs. Project Transformation believes that future leaders need the opportunity to serve hands-on in their communities.
The PT Corps Members, in turn, are the key to delivering academic, spiritual, and enrichment programming for children and youth across the Dallas area. Project Transformation has expanded in size and scope since its founding and now serves ten site locations in several distinct areas of need in North Texas including Oak Cliff, Pleasant Grove, east Dallas, northwest Dallas, Farmers Branch, and one rural, low-income community in Denison, Texas.
Today, over 100 PT Corps Members serve approximately 1,000 children and youth, grades 1st-9th, and provide a leadership development program to high school youth, grades 10th-12th, at ten summer sites and seven after-school sites. In our 18-year history, Project Transformation has equipped over 1,000 PT Corps Members for future leadership and has served over 8,000 children and youth. The service program for young adults has proven to be a life-changing experience. Of those who have already graduated from college, over 60% now work or volunteer in a ministry or service-related field. Project Transformation is raising leaders of the next generation while making a significant impact in the communities it serves, turning dormant neighborhood space into vital assets.
