We all want to raise generous, service-minded kids who think of others before themselves, but it's not so easy. Let's face it --in between all of the spelling words, homework, sports practices, and music lessons, it can be hard to find time to squeeze in the Corporal Works of Mercy.
But never fear, Wonder Workers is here!
Started in 2014, Wonder Workers is an after school group for students JK-8* who are ready to put that super catchy "Go Make a Difference" song into action. We'll meet four evenings during the course of the school year. Throughout the year, we will sort toiletries for Walk for the Poor, make sandwiches for St. Vincent de Paul, and we plan on partnering with Catholic Charities of St. Louis (Marygrove and Saint Martha's Hall) for other projects as well.
Wonder Workers is a hands-on approach to teaching service. We like to say it's more about do than donate. At each Wonder Workers meeting we'll learn about our mission of whom we're trying to help and then get to work. Meetings will run from 6-7 p.m. We will send out a sign up genius with information and sign up prior to each session.

*Students in grade 3 and below will need to be supervised at each meeting by a parent or designated adult who has completed the Prevent and Protect program from the St. Louis Archdiocese (formerly Protecting God's Children). While fourth grade and up can attend without parent supervision, we'd love to have any willing adult hands on deck to guide our Wonder Workers!
