Project Transformation Tennessee (PT) seeks young adults eager to make an impact through leadership and service to apply for summer 2019 internships in Memphis, Tennessee.

Interns lead a summer day camp for children and youth, live in intentional community with other interns, learn from Christ-inspired church and community leaders, explore faith in action, and represent Project Transformation in the community.

Through leadership and ministry with three Memphis neighborhood churches (Centenary United Methodist Church, Longstreet United Methodist Church and Scenic Hills United Methodist Church) PT is eager to continue to raise up young leaders within the Memphis Conference of The United Methodist Church.

Competitive applicants will be dynamic young people who desire to serve God and neighbor, believe in life beyond comfort zones, are willing to sit with the unknown, and have hope for a better world. Applicants must have completed one year of college or be at least 19 years old before the internship begins.

Compensation for PT Tennessee interns includes $2,000 pay, as well as room and board. The service term runs from May 24 to July 26, 2019. The priority deadline for applications is Jan. 15, 2019.
