The Puente Program is an academic, counseling and mentoring program that has improved college persistence and success rates for thousands of California’s educationally under-served students.
The Puente mission is to increase the number of community college students who:
- Transfer and enroll in four-year colleges and universities
- Earn college degrees
- Return to the community as mentors and leaders
Space is limited to approximately 25 students per academic year. The program enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. We will utilize waitlists for any additional interested students and provide referrals for any additional services available.
