The City Gospel Mission's Whiz Kids Tutoring program is a literacy-based, one-to-one tutoring and mentoring program for children ages 6 - 12. Whiz Kids reaches 1200 at-risk youth in 54 tutoring sites throughout Greater Cincinnati. The program partners with more than 75 local churches and 60 public elementary schools, reaching at-risk youth from Over-the-Rhine, West Chester, Milford and Florence, Kentucky. Students in the program consistently outperform matched groups of non-tutored students in reading. Funding is needed to expand this program to new locations and to serve more students and a grant was given to this organization through a fund of the Cambridge Charitable Foundation.
