We recently launched WyzAid, a platform for volunteer tutoring. Leveraging some of the same technology that powers WyzAnt.com, we are working with schools and community organizations here in Chicago to provide free tutoring to those in need. With a little luck and a lot of hard work, we hope to expand WyzAid across the country in the coming years!
Each year, WyzAnt sponsors an essay contest for current and aspiring college students. This year, $15,000 in total scholarships awards are up for grabs! Applicants can promote their essays using social media during the first round. Then, WyzAnt's network of tutors weighs in to select the winners from a group of 20 finalists.

Closer to home, WyzAnt employees contribute to food drives during the holidays and book drives throughout the year to share our love of reading with children in Chicago. There's even talk of WyzAnt getting a team together for a 5k race this year . . . I don’t know if it’s going to happen, but I’m going to start training just in case!
We believe every student deserves access to a quality education, but unfortunately, many students cannot afford the supplemental help they need. Our tutors share that belief and have made WyzAid a reality by volunteering their time to work with students who otherwise would not have access to personalized instruction.
