It’s finally fall, which means there are so many things to look forward to aside from the chilly weather and holidays! Project Makeover has a ton of opportunities to get involved and make an impact, and it’s never too late to make a difference.
So many people think that Project Makeover is just one weekend out of the entire school year where everyone comes together to create a dynamic and magical learning environment for an elementary school. While Makeover Weekend is our biggest event of the year, there are so many other events and fun things planned that have us falling for PM this fall!
At Project Makeover, we care about our teams and staff, and we want everyone to have fun! After all, the one thing we have in common is our love for PM! Our team retreats are a great way to give staff the chance to get to know each other and meet people in different teams they will be working with throughout the year. There are also many other opportunities to meet everyone in PM, like our tabling events, socials, and FUNdraising week!
Our events aren’t just limited to the PM team. Every year Project Makeover holds our Sandbox Tournament, where anyone can sign up and join a team to play beach volleyball. This tournament is our biggest fundraising push of the year for our events in the spring. It’s a day filled with good food, raffles, good competition, and of course support for PM!
Another one of our fall events we have in store is Mini Makeover Weekend! This year our Mini Makeover is October 23rd at Prairie View Elementary. Like our big annual Makeover Weekend, Mini Makeover will be a chance for the PM team to continue creating spaces for both students and teachers to dream big.
Project Makeover is a year-round organization that focuses on creating interactive learning environments for elementary schools and engages college students with their local communities. Through our schedule full of events and chances to get involved, we make the year memorable for everyone that is a part of PM.
