Project Transformation gives college age young adults an unforgettable summer to connect with other young adults; serve children in areas experiencing marginalization; receive professional development; discern their life’s mission; step into actionable leadership; and immerse themselves in a community of young adults, children, and churches.

Young adults in the program will become AmeriCorps members for 10 weeks, and lead summer day camps focused on literacy around the state of Oklahoma. Reading proficiency is a key indicator of a child’s future success, yet 80 percent of children in households experiencing marginalization are behind grade level in reading. Project Transformation works to improve the literacy levels of Oklahoma children in a fun camp environment.
