IMPACTING OUR COMMUNITIES
WITS is committed to comprehensive program evaluation to ensure that we are making a positive impact in the lives of the students we serve. Our data informs program enhancements and opportunities for growth and expansion.
Annual program evaluation demonstrates that WITS programs put students on a path towards becoming lifelong learners. Results consistently demonstrate positive gains for WITS students – proving that one-on-one reading with trained literacy mentors and teacher-led professional development help to increase student reading skills and attitudes.
WITS is committed to sharing our program evaluation and financial position yearly. The below reports provide the full outlook of how WITS performs as a completely privately funded organization and the strides we are making in program outcome and design.
