The Enhance Community Project is an annual community service event which focuses on enriching the Wichita area while providing YPW members the opportunity to give back to the community. This project is a one-day event focusing on enhancing a specified area of the Wichita community through property improvements. On the same day, we coordinate a community celebration with family-friendly activities, lunch, and more.

In 2014, 145 volunteers made improvements to 6 different homes, completed one major project for the Downtown Senior Center, and worked with the ICT Army of Artists to install an art mural that can still be seen when driving west on Douglas in the Delano District.

2015 Enhance Project Description

For 2015, our goal is to work on 9 homes plus community art and enhancement projects with at least 200 volunteers! The date has been changed to Saturday, June 20 and we will be in the Evergreen Park Neighborhood in Wichita’s Sixth District.

Volunteer Information

Volunteers can sign up for a full-day (7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.), morning (7:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.) or afternoon (11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.) shift. All shifts include lunch and a volunteer t-shirt.

The Enhance Community Project will focus on providing property improvements to owner-occupied residences, publicly owned property, or nonprofit centers. The project tasks may include:

  • Improving landscaping throughout the designated area

Accompanying the neighborhood enhancement project will be a community interaction event to include activities such as:
