April 17, 2013

How do you make sure kids get an education if they don't even have a place to call home? Medical students from Wayne State University provide tutoring to young people at Covenant House, a place which offers food, shelter and education for homeless teens. Wayne State Student Nabil Al-Kourainy is one of the coordinators of the tutoring program. He says some of the kids need help with the basics to learn reading and math. "It's really an amazing program, which is why I'm so excited to play a small part in it," said Al-Kourainy.
