Whiz Kids

Whiz Kids is a program designed as a mentor-ship program for students 1st through 5th grade. By providing a safe environment, opportunity for relationship building with dedicated mentors, and a heavy dose of a loving spirit we believe we can help students along their path in life. Whiz Kids’ holistic approach, which encompasses not only excellent educational support but also one-on-one mentoring and spiritual nurturing within the tutor-child relationship, is truly making a difference in the lives of children. The program is being jointly sponsored by Aldersgate UMC, Freedom for Youth Ministries and the Urbandale Community Action Network (UCAN).

The expectation is that you will work with 1-2 students each week. It is important that you be there regularly. Materials will be provided. No prior teaching or tutoring experience is required. A background check is required.
