At Laurel Heights we believe all children are important and valuable. One way we live out this commitment is providing and supporting programs that care for children in the times they are out of school.
How to Support Project Transformation
After months of recruiting and searching for enough college interns to work for Project Transformation this summer, there just aren’t as many as Project Transformation had planned and hoped for. This means that Project Transformation will operate in this not-normal-summer at half the staff planned. Because of this there will be fewer sites and every site will be smaller. Laurel Heights will not be a Project Transformation site this summer. I hope you will join me in showering Westlawn United Methodist Church and Northern Hills United Methodist Church in good wishes for the PT summer ahead. Reading Buddies are welcome at both these sites.
It will be a summer like no other on the campus of Laurel Heights but also an opportunity like no other to show our commitment to loving children into literacy by volunteering and supporting Project Transformation in these exciting ways.
Laurel Heights is home to some of the best cooks in the county!
Partner up with a friend or a small group to provide a delicious dinner for the hardworking PT interns at their residence on Vance Jackson Road!

Step 2: Sign up to Volunteer
Caring volunteers read with children in 1st-6th grade enrolled in PT’s summer day camps. The literacy component of Project Transformation is an exciting opportunity for volunteers to interact with children in a one-to-one setting. No previous experience is needed and volunteers can sign up for one day or multiple days.
