Transform Week

Make a big impact on a Cedar Rapids neighborhood during Transform Week. This annual event brings together community volunteers to complete projects that make our neighborhoods safer, healthier, and more attractive. Please register online if you would like to volunteer!

Transform a home. Transform a life.

2018 Dates

The 2018 Transform Week is Monday, June 25 through Friday, June 29. Most work days go from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with a break for lunch. Lunch is provided.



Work side-by-side with other volunteers in the community for a day or the entire week.  All skill levels are welcome—construction experience isn’t required. We’ll provide safety equipment for whatever task you take on.

You’ll be able to choose which project you’d like to help with on the morning of each volunteer day. If you have any special skills, please indicate so on the volunteer registration form and we may contact you in advance to match you with a project that requires your skill set.

Join us! Register online to volunteer for Transform!
