Whiz Kids began in 1990 through the collaborative efforts of church, community, school and business leaders in Denver. Their desire was to bring resources into neighborhoods where there was a need to bridge the achievement gap. Whiz Kids began a city-wide outreach by partnering suburban and urban churches with urban schools. This partnership led to one-on-one tutoring with elementary-age children. The result was a program called "Wise Guys," with three locations and 60 kids.
That our students engage in school and the world as confident learners who understand their innate worth and have hope for their future.
Eventually, the name was changed to Whiz Kids Tutoring and today, Whiz Kids is a 501 (c)3 non-profit with over 40 sites that serve elementary and middle school students throughout the metro area and beyond.
