Here’s what the Daily Breeze newspaper (August 18, 2016) wrote about West: “To tutor our citizens, college students from West Los Angeles College are enrolled in a directed study course, gaining class credit and satisfying their service learning requirements, as well as connecting with their neighbors and future careers through community service. By matching these students with adults who have limited or no computer abilities, we hope to transform the lives of both.”
