WITS aims to share all evaluations and outcomes. This provides school partners with the data needed to identify how WITS can best serve their students, as well as providing insight to investors on the impact of their support.
A neighborhood approach
Our school partners represent 46 Chicago neighborhoods. WITS delivers thousands of hours of professional development for teachers and volunteer mentorship to students in 92 elementary schools – making us the largest provider of literacy programming in Chicago Public Schools.
WITS offers a unique model for partner corporations to engage in Chicago Public Schools. Our Workplace Mentoring and Mid-Day Mentoring programs build bridges between The Loop and the neighborhoods that make Chicago unique. Today, WITS is the largest activator of year-long corporate volunteer programming in Chicago Public Schools.
