WHY WHIT?

The WHIT Program works with volunteers to provide free tutoring to kids in foster care. Our goal is to bring each child in foster care up to grade level in reading and math.

We currently offer tutoring in math and reading for all grade levels. If you know a student who can benefit from personalized tutoring, please reach out to us.

 

OUR PROGRAM

Our goal is to help children in foster care get up to speed with school. Our wonderful tutors will help these children succeed and will bring them up to grade level.

 

Welcome to the Whit Program!

Tutoring for Kids in Foster Care


We work with the local Child Protective Services to identify children in foster care who need help with math and reading. The WHIT program is named for Whitney Thompson, the late daughter of program founder Jennifer Lisson. Whitney inspired others with her love of people and her caring for the less fortunate. It's in her memory that The WHIT Program was established. Most kids in foster care are behind their peers in school. The WHIT Program works with volunteers to provide free tutoring to kids in foster care. Our goal is to bring each child in foster care up to grade level in reading and math.
