Google Tutoring Event

During Google’s Volunteer week, over 50 janitors and Google employee volunteers were thanked for their participation in a pilot tutoring program at a night-time event June 16th hosted by Google’s Facilities Director and ABM. For over three months, tutoring pairs met at least once a week for individualized tutoring. Google employee, Sassi  Morales Diaz Ordaz, spoke at the event about how rewarding it has been for her to see the janitor she tutored progress from not writing to writing a six syllable word. The event also raised over $5,000 thanks to matching funds from Google for donations from their employees.
