Volunteer Application

volunteer with 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.
