Mission: Our mission is to engage young adults in purposeful leadership and ministry, support underserved children and families, and connect churches to communities in need. If you’re new to Project Transformation, the easiest way to understand how we live out our mission is remembering the three C’s: Children, College students, and Churches. Since our founding in 1998, this ministry has been addressing three unique challenges with one program: 1) how to meet the academic, physical, and spiritual needs of children from low-income communities, 2) how to provide meaningful ways for college students to explore ministry opportunities and develop as young adult leaders for the church and the world, and 3) how to help revitalize struggling urban churches.

Through its paid AmeriCorps Members (“PT Corps Members”), Project Transformation provides an 8-week summer daycamp (Monday through Thursday) for underserved children and youth (grades 1-12) in the Dallas area. 

 

PT Corps Members gain practical (and fun!) experience with children and youth, as well as personal and professional development through training courses held on Fridays.  Daily summer daycamp activities include literacy development, physical fitness and recreation activities, nutrition education, arts and crafts, Bible lessons, and much more!  PT Corps Members are tasked with implementing programming and curriculum for summer daycamps.  They lead educational activities, group games, and other enriching opportunities.

 

Qualifications:  High School Diploma (or equivalent) and completion of some college hours.  18 years of age or older.  Strong work ethic.  Team player.  Community-minded.  Application and 3 references.

 

Notes:  Friday training courses for PT Corps Members include experiences that provide the opportunity to explore various career paths, especially in service and ministry. 

 

Career Exploration: Each Friday during the summer program, PT Corps Members are exposed to a number of different professional and vocational opportunities in education, service, and ministry through guest speakers, field trips, and interactions with community and church leaders. Examples include visits to various community organizations and United Methodist churches and institutions, such as Methodist Health System, UMR Communications, Justice for Our Neighbors, Perkins School of Theology, Texas Methodist Foundation, and Methodist Children’s Homes.

 

PT Corps Members live together on a college campus and are provided with their housing and most meals during the summer, as well as a living stipend ($2,500) and educational voucher ($1,515)!

CAHABA ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER

Environmental Educator

 

About the Cahaba Environmental Center:  The Cahaba Environmental Center (CEC) is an environmental education organization managed by McDowell

Environmental Center. The CEC is located on the property of Living River: A Retreat on the Cahaba, outside of Montevallo in Bibb and Shelby Counties. The site is a breathtaking tree-covered point nestled in a deep bend in the Cahaba River, preserving a mix of hardwoods and older trees that were once typical of Alabama’s river bottoms but elsewhere have been logged and replaced with faster-growing pines. The Cahaba River provides habitat for an impressive diversity of aquatic species, is one of Birmingham’s drinking water sources, and has become a hot spot for recreational activities. Because of our unique location, we front over 4 miles of the river to canoe and explore.

 

Opportunity:  The Cahaba Environmental Center’s pilot season starts this fall. In our residential environmental education program, school groups spend 3-5 days exploring the natural and cultural history of Alabama. Our curriculum is based in place, student-centered, hands-on, and follows inquiry-based and holistic approaches. Currently our programs are aligned to Alabama standards for grades 4-8, but we will be expanding our curriculum to include high school standards in 2016. In addition to our residential environmental education program, the Cahaba Environmental Center will also host a field science school for university and college professors to teach and participate in field research with their students.

 

Mission: The mission of the Cahaba Environmental Center at Living River is to inspire and empower learners of all ages to become stewards of the natural world by connecting them to the Cahaba River.

 

Program:  Students will make personal connections to the Cahaba River through first-hand experiences.  Students will increase their awareness and understanding of Alabama ecosystems and human interactions with the Cahaba River. Students will connect with each other and gain a better sense of community. Students will become empowered to make positive decisions as environmental stewards.

 

Description: A CEC environmental educator facilitates a variety of cultural history, environmental science, and community building activities with learners of varied ages, learning styles, and abilities. Our curriculum covers ecological concepts, watershed sciences, Native American cultures, geologic processes, coal mining, and evening programs such as campfires, night hikes, and town hall debates. An educator leads one field group of 10-13

students throughout a school’s entire visit. This provides a chance for the educator to develop meaningful relationships with their students and tailor their lessons to best meet the interests and needs of the group. During our pilot season in Fall 2015, there are plenty of opportunities for staff to take on personal projects to expand their experiences in trail building, creating teaching materials, meeting with teachers, and a variety of

other skills. All potentials are seasonal at this time.

 

Responsibilities Include: Teach engaging natural and cultural history lessons to learners of all ages.  Create a safe, positive learning environment for learners through positive reinforcement, rolemodeling, and cultural sensitivity.  Lead groups on hikes, canoeing, and other naturalist activities.  Facilitate low ropes course initiatives.  Provide leadership in risk management before, during, and after classes (e.g., respond to emergencies, administer first aid, maintain first aid kits, complete incident reports).  Serve as a positive role model to visitors and fellow staff members.  Maintain teaching materials and perform regular maintenance duty each week, or as necessary.  Participate in staff meetings.  Actively participate in program evaluation.  Represent and support the Cahaba Environmental Center in marketing and activities that promote

Enrollment.  Complete projects that support and improve the CEC’s education program.  Live and work respectfully with others.

ANNA MAGAZINE

Art/Editorial Internship

 

Opportunity: After graduation, I went to the Summer Publishing Institute at NYU. My group won the magazine competition and have since started our own online magazine, ANNA Magazine, LLC. We've been blown away at the positive reception so far, and are happily at the point that we need interns. So crazy!

 

Description: I wanted to reach out and see if you knew any students who might be interested in an internship? The internships are in art and editorial. We're asking 8-10 hours a week, so it's really very minimal. Of course, it someone wanted class credit or needed more internship hours, we would be more than happy to work with them.  As far as the actual internship goes, they would be doing the majority of the work online, so they could do that from school. We'd only need the editorial intern to do in person office hours one day a week, since I'm the only one here in Birmingham. If they're interested in the art internship, they'd be doing all of it remotely, as our art director is in NYC.

As a Financial Institution Specialist (FIS), they will gain a broad understanding of the banking industry and acquire the skills needed to keep up with ever changing developments within the industry. The four-year CEP training program will teach candidates everything they need to know to prepare for a career in either government service or the private sector, while earning a competitive salary with outstanding benefits.

YWCA / AMERICORPS

Domestic Violence Services / Healthy Relationships Program

 

Opportunity:  YWCA Central Alabama’s “Building Communities, Bettering Lives” AmeriCorps program is recruiting 40 members for the 2015-2016 program year. Men and women from Alabama and around the country are invited to apply for the one year of full-time capacity building and direct service through August 2016 benefitting the YWCA and its non-profit partner agencies. Specifically, the YWCA is seeking Healthy Relationships AmeriCorps Members who will facilitate an evidence-based curriculum in area middle and high schools aimed at helping students recognize the difference between healthy relationships and abusive relationships.  The YWCA is actively recruiting for the 2015-2016 term and plan to fill all positions by August 3, 2015.

 

Description:  The YWCA Central Alabama offers the Healthy Relationships Program for area middle schools and high schools free of charge.  The program utilizes the Safe Dates curriculum, an evidence-based curriculum that has been designated as a Model Program by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and was selected for the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), receiving high ratings on all criteria.  Safe Dates helps teens recognize the difference between caring, supportive relationships, and controlling, manipulative, or abusive relationships.  It is during the critical pre-teen and teen years that young people begin to learn the skills needed to create and foster positive relationships.  With Safe Dates, a highly engaging and interactive program, young people are given the tools needed to build these skills. 

 

Ideally, the program is facilitated in its entirety – which is nine 50-minute sessions, however, YWCA Healthy Relationships staff work with schools to accommodate their needs, and tailor the program to fit each school’s availability.  Session topics include: defining caring relationships, defining dating abuse, why people abuse, how to help friends, overcoming gender stereotypes, equal power through communication, how we feel & how we deal, and preventing sexual assault. 

 

Facilitators work with school administrators, counselors and teachers to recruit schools for the program, coordinate scheduling and implement the program.  In addition to pre and post tests, facilitators present a one-month follow-up evaluation for participants, and are responsible for disseminating and collecting all evaluations and tests for statistical and reporting purposes. 

 

The other major role of Healthy Relationships AmeriCorps Members is to serve at numerous outreach events & fairs in the community sharing information about domestic violence & the YWCA’s DV services.  AmeriCorps Members will be trained thoroughly in the dynamics of domestic violence so they feel equipped to lead trainings in the community.  Some outreach events are speaking engagements, while others are “fairs” and only require AmeriCorps Members to distribute brochures and talk one-on-one about the YWCA’s domestic violence services as people come to the table to request information.
