This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


PTNT is committed to supporting children in their love of reading and academic growth. This Summer we will have volunteers read in-person with children one-on-one, working to help maintain or improve their reading level and love of literacy throughout the summer. Reading Bookworm Buddies offer genuine relationships, encouragement, and reading help for children during the Summer. In order to volunteer in person with Project Transformation North Texas, you must go through Ministry Safe Training and undergo a background check. If you are a member of a United Methodist Church, please work with your church to complete your Ministry Safe training and background check. In-person Reading Bookworm Buddies will take place at 7 different locations throughout the summer. Please see addresses to volunteer sites below:
