Leadership Columbus and the Brookstone Key Club are partnering together to develop a new tutoring program for Wynnton Elementary School called Kids 4 Kids. The Key Club Members will visit twice a month and implement a planned tutoring curriculum to motivate these students and improve their reading. 18 Key Club members went to Wynnton on Feb 9 and had a successful first meeting. Leadership Columbus hopes this will be a continuous program for several years.
