Begun in 1981, the Puente project helps to prepare educationally disadvantaged students for college admission and success through its combination of accelerated instruction, intensive academic counseling, and mentoring by members of the community.
We encourage all college students that have a strong desire to transfer to a four-year university to apply. If you are interested in learning about the Latinx culture and connecting with a learning community, please complete the
student interest form below and contact Veronica Harris. Program Space Availability is limited-first come, first-serve.
To increase the number of educationally underrepresented students who enroll in four-year colleges and universities, earn degrees, and return to the community as leaders and mentors to future generations.
