Program Overview

Whiz Kids Oklahoma provides literacy tutoring to approximately 900 under-resourced students from the Oklahoma City area in grades 1-6 from six school districts: Crooked Oak, Crutchco, Mid-Del, Millwood, Oklahoma City and Putnam City. We partner with 70+ churches and coordinate more than 1,400 volunteers to provide students with a one-on-one tutoring and mentoring experience that helps them develop into confident readers who perform better at school and in life.

Mission Statement

The mission of Whiz Kids Oklahoma is to improve the well-being of inner-city youth through academic tutoring and positive mentoring relationships, while communicating spiritual and moral values.

Hours of operation: 9 am - 5 PM

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

"Whiz Kids is a vital program in the life of our city...scores of inner-city children are being encouraged to read and progress in their education through the efforts of concerned mentors. Citizens from our suburban neighborhoods are interacting on a weekly basis with inner-city kids, and making a real difference."
