West End United Methodist Church

Project Transformation Reading Week

West End is partnering with Project Transformation TN for its 13th summer.  Project Transformation is a United Methodist affiliated ministry that provides leadership development and ministry exploration opportunities to college-age young adults.  Working with churches in low-income neighborhoods in Middle Tennessee, these emerging leaders coordinate community-oriented programs for underserved children and youth focusing on literacy and social emotional learning. Here are some ways you can be involved:

  • Read with Children – West End’s reading week will be Monday – Thursday, July 8 – 11 at Woodbine UMC from 9:30AM – 12:15PM.  Each day, we will provide 10 volunteers to read with children.  Ages 13 years and up are encouraged to volunteer.  
  • Provide a Meal – 21 young adult interns will be living in community as they lead programming and explore vocational opportunities as they work on ministry and leadership skills. They are usually a hungry bunch after a day of camp!  West End’s dinner dates are Wednesday, June 12 and Wednesday, July 10 from 5:40 – 7:00PM. 
  • Donate Supplies – Donate supplies for PT’s summer programming.  Click on the QR code below for their Wish List.  There will be a bin on the 1st floor for donations beginning on April 14.  Deadline is Sunday, May 19.
