A local group of Wayne State University medical students come to Covenant House Michigan on a weekly basis to provide tutoring and mentoring. Their help makes it possible for the young people to finish their high school diploma, complete a GED or begin college without having to feel like they are on their own once they walk out of the classroom. Tutor Shawn Stewart sees the experience of working in the city as a way to learn how to relate to a broader range of patients in his future work. “When I started at Wayne State, I knew that I wanted to be involved with the community and to actually get a feel for how the city runs and operates,” Stewart said. “I’ve wanted the chance to be able to see the type of people and the experience that this city has had to endure.”
