July


Mission of the Month for July

Project Transformation mission is to transform communities by engaging, children, college-age young adults and churches in purposeful relationships.

Do you have a passion helping children to improve their literacy and love reading?  Project Transformation is looking for volunteers to offer reading assistance to young children.  They offer Summer volunteer opportunities as well as after school volunteer opportunities.  The after-school program serves children grades K-5 in high need neighborhoods.  Children receive daily enrichment activities to include homework assistance, art, science, math and nutrition education.  These activities aim to address deficiencies and  the love of reading. To learn more about volunteer opportunities and how to get involved with Project Transformation, please visit https://projecttransformation.org/rio-texas/get-involved/volunteer.
