Child_Enrichment

The Seeds for Success Program is dedicated creating opportunities for Catholic Charities clients through comprehensive services focused on building self-sufficiency.

Child Enrichment volunteers commit to a weekly, one-hour time slot to work with children of families in shelter with Catholic Charities Wichita. Lessons are planned in advance with the goal of building empathy and other skills, while parents take part in workshops that aimed to help them find, obtain, and be ready for sustainable employment.

Volunteers will work with a group size of one to fifteen children of all ages.

All Child Enrichment volunteers are required to pass a background check and take a three-hour class that teaches best practices for protecting youth and vulnerable adults.

Current shifts available:

  • Tuesdays 9:45a.m. - 11p.m.
  • Thursdays 9:45a.m. -11p.m.

Mission Statement

Catholic Charities, Diocese of Wichita alleviates poverty and builds stable and strong families throughout 25 counties in south central and southeast Kansas. We hold to the truth that poverty is not a given. In fact, we believe overcoming poverty is not just a task of charity, but an act of justice. That’s why we not only seek to "get our hands dirty" as Pope Francis directs us, by serving the hungry, homeless, victims of violence and those in family crises in our many programs and projects, but we advocate for our clients and work to fix and repair the systems that fail people in poverty - and ultimately fail us all. We aspire to be great in facing these challenges, and we invite people of all faiths to join us. We do this work because stable and strong families that can break through the barriers of poverty, and can improve upon the good and the dignity inherent to every family member, ultimately mean hopeful communities for our entire human family.
