Whiz Kids is a literacy-based, one-to-one tutoring and mentoring program. The program reaches 1,300 at-risk youth in 64 tutoring sites throughout Greater Cincinnati. Whiz Kids partners with more than 80 local churches and 70 public elementary schools, reaching at-risk youth from Over-the-Rhine and Madisonville to West Chester and Milford to Florence, Ky., and Middletown.
There are currently two sites in Norwood: Sharpsburg Elementary and Williams Elementary. Tutoring only requires a time commitment of one hour per week during the school year, and there is no preparation or previous experience required. Learning to read better can alter the entire trajectory of a child’s life. For more information or to sign up, click here.
