Whiz Kids' History
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.
Eventually, the name was changed to Whiz Kids Tutoring and today, Whiz Kids is a 501 (c)3 non-profit with over 50 sites that serve more than 800 elementary and middle school students throughout the metro area. Our goal is to reach 1,000 kids annually by 2020.
