IIDA Wichita City Center Spring Event
Construction Days | April 12-14
Unveiling Event | April 18
1601 East Douglas
This spring IIDA Wichita City Center will be undertaking an extreme interior makeover for a not-for-profit organization in the local community. Applications were submitted from several well-deserving groups and organizations and this year's chosen recipient is Youth Horizon.
The Mission: Youth Horizons exists to empower children and their families to become healthy and productive members of our community. They achieve this through their mentoring program. Children ages 5-14 are paired with a positive adult role-model who meets with them 2-3 hours per week for a year or more. During this time, the children engage in fun and life-building skills.
The Makeover: With the success of the Youth Horizons mentor Program more and more youth are enrolling. Unfortunately, there are not enough mentors to provide a match for each child, leaving many in a "waiting list" state. IIDA will be renovating a current multipurpose room into a game room. This space will provide a fun and safe place for the youth and facilitate interaction between the youth and various mentors. it will also function as a place for paired youth to enjoy time with their specific mentor. Following the completion of this project we will hve a social unveiling event to celebrate teh hard work of all the individual sponsors and workers involved and showcase teh new and inproved space.
How YOU can help: This event would not be possible without the generous support and donations IIDA receives from their supporters. IIDA is in need of additional support. Please check out their WISH LIST and see if you can help.
