Every Saturday morning for the past month, behind closed doors and without fanfare, nine college students go about making their world a better place – one new word, one flipped flash card, one pat on the back at a time.
The students, all vocational education majors at California State University, Sacramento, provide tutoring services for immigrant parents with limited English skills so the parents can be more involved in their children's schoolwork.
By all accounts, the parents and Sacramento State students have been transformed by the experience.
