By Ohlone College.
In the end of February, 30 Puente students met and formed connections with professionals who work in government, education, non-profit organizations and private industries such as health care, engineering and information technology. These professionals give their time to mentor young Hispanic/Latino students in the Puente program by providing them with strong role models who support and encourage students to pursue academic excellence.
The Puente Project is a transfer program designed to help students continue their education and to pave educational and career pathways for others to follow. Puente has been a vibrant part of Ohlone's education environment for more than ten years.
