1Project Change began in October 2001 as the collaboration of leading academic and service agencies at work in Montgomery County, Maryland. With them, CHANGE shares a mission of improving the quality of life for county residents with a particular emphasis on those in southern Silver Spring and a focus on education.
2Paul Costello founded the Center for Narrative Studies (www.storywise.com) and is an international educator, pioneering narrative practice which he studied under fellow Australian, Michael White, the father of narrative therapy.
3CHANGE, which stands for “Changing, Healing, Aspiring, Nurturing, Giving, Excelling” captures the spirit of the program
4Project Change is proud to work with partners who host our AmeriCorps volunteers. Each of the partner sites provide quality work placements and first class supervision. Many of our partners employ former Project Change graduates that helps thicken the tradition and gives the work the feeling of family.
