Omar helps tutor a younger Somali student in Arabic at the Jesse Epstein building during a weekend session. “The weekday one is about their homework—like math and stuff like that. But the weekend one, they learn about their language and culture. They take Arabic classes. I like the weekend one better because there are more people my age there. I see some of my friends mostly during tutoring.”

Gurey is happy Omar has taken an interest. “I’m not forcing him or telling him to do it, he’s doing it because he wants to help others. I’m proud of him; he’s helping the community and giving back. “
