Puente mentors

Mentors are a key component to accomplishing the mission and goals of the Puente Project. It is the intersection of English, Counseling and the Mentoring components that provide the foundational source of support for the Puentistas to reach their academic, career and personal goals. Mentors offer insight, provide guidance, and share their experiences in college and on their chosen career path.
