From Our Mentors

Mentoring a Puente student is truly one of those opportunities where both the student and the mentor benefit greatly. I have met some of the most inspiring young people through this program, and marvel at their determination, resourcefulness, and heart.  Having an adult ally is an important contributing factor in a student's success and the Puente Program puts interested community members together with this great group of students.
Anna Pilloton

Puente students, staff and mentors exemplify the best in inclusive and equitable educational opportunity. Puente instructors and counselors help students navigate college course work and mentors share experiences that help Puenteistas create a realistic college vision plan. Best of all it works!
