Whiz Kidz

Learn how you can help us shine the love of Jesus to at-risk children in our neighborhood

Whiz Kidz is an after-school and summer program for children from kindergarten through fifth grade to learn and experience the love of Jesus, build confidence in academics, and grow as young leaders. This Freedom For Youth program operates at several locations around the Des Moines Metro. Family Church volunteers head up a group at Eastview Community Center on Thursday evenings throughout the school year.

Neighborhood kids are transported by van to and from Eastview, provided a healthy dinner, and guided through games, reading, crafts, and Bible study.

We are always in need of volunteers to help minister to these kids in a variety ways:

  • Van drivers
  • Cook and deliver a meal for 40 kids/volunteers
  • Donate meal ingredients
  • Meal server and clean-up
  • Group leader
  • Group helper
  • Crafts
  • One-on-one mentoring
