PUENTE'S MISSION

The mission of the Puente Project is to increase the number of educationally underserved students who enroll in four year colleges and universities, earn degrees, and return to the community as leaders and mentors to future generations. Puente is open to all interested students.

    Puente students work closely with their Puente counselor to explore career options, develop an academic educational plan, individual counseling sessions and identify their goals through the Puente Personal Development course, Introduction to College (Personal Development1) which is offered Fall semester. Students visit campuses of the University of California and other four-year universities and attend an annual Puente student transfer motivational conference.
  • MENTORING
    Puente students are matched with an academically and professionally successful mentor from the community. Mentors share with the students how they managed to succeed in the educational system, how they succeed as professionals while maintaining their cultural identity, and how they now balance family, career and community related activities, and provide resources for student assignments and projects.
