Project Tallahassee is a monthly service ministry through Downtown Community Church. Our heart as a church is not only to come together on Sundays but to strengthen the church body by serving alongside one another as great neighbors. Project Tallahassee collaborates with nonprofit organizations in the Tallahassee area to meet the needs of people in our community and express the love of Jesus through word and action. Our mission as a ministry is to Serve (1 Samuel 12:24), Connect (Proverbs 27:17), and Abound (Philippians 1:9).
Organizations we are currently partnered with:
PACE Center for Girls
Oak Ridge Elementary School
Second Harvest of the Big Bend

We are accepting applications for HOPE Mentors for fall 2019. Attending our cultural responsiveness training is a requirement to volunteer with us. Please RSVP below to attend our HOPE Mentor Training.
The HOPE Program is a one-on-one mentorship program that serves youth in our community from Pre-K through 8th grade. Our goal is to partner with the scholars and their families to provide scholars with the skills and foundations to become emotionally, relationally, and spiritually healthy adults.
Our K-4th grade scholars meet on Monday evenings from 5:00-7:00pm where we carry out our elementary program. This includes a time where we all come together to start off with a high energy welcome, which includes singing, dancing, positive affirmations, a short devotional, and our weekly announcements. The scholars then break off with their mentor and work on homework or academics for about an hour, which leads into free time for the mentor/scholar pair to partake in an activity they both enjoy. We end with dinner all together and dismissal. Our hope is that this time with our scholars will empower them to take ownership in both their educational and faith journey, so that they can make a difference in our community.
HOPE Underground meets on Wednesday nights from 5:00-7:00pm. Here our secondary scholars continue to work with our mentors and their peers to develop educationally, spiritually, and emotionally. This includes a high energy welcome, small group academic time with dinner, and ends with a time of bible study, fellowship, and prayer with one another. Our hope is that our scholars understand the importance of community through this time with their mentors and one another and continue growing through this time together.
