Volunteering at Catholic Charities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Catholic Charities Inc., Diocese of Wichita. Volunteers are vital to the success of Catholic Charities and contribute greatly to our ability to help clients in need. Volunteers make a difference with hands that serve and hearts that care. We couldn’t do it without our volunteers!

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Children and Kids:

We welcome children, age 7 to 17 years of age. If the child is between 7 and 15 years, a parent or guardian must accompany the child at all times. If you are a parent-guardian/child team an application will need to be completed for both the parent-guardian and the child. For teens 16 and 17 years of age, the parent-guardian MUST sign the application for the teen but does not have to accompany the teen to the program.

If you choose to volunteer with Catholic Charities, please fill the appropriate application below.

Step 2: Background Checks:

Please note that you will be asked for your social security number and date of birth on the background check forms which are secured for the privacy and confidentiality of your records.

Step 3: Parental Consent:

If you are under the age of 18 years, you must have a parent or legal guardian sign the application to give consent for you to volunteer and agree to indemnify Catholic Charities, and hold harmless its agents or employees from any injury, loss, liability, damage or costs that they may incur by reason of the volunteer’s participation in any of their programs.  If you are 15 years of age or younger, a parent or guardian must accompany you to the program and volunteer with you.
