PUENTES

Puentes Mentoring Program aims to promote discussions based on culture, identity, social structures, and students' roles in society; we encourage participants to explore and embrace their cultural heritage and engage in their communities.

 

Throughout the school year, we offer afterschool groups to support students; our mentor helps them build core skills and master academic concepts, and the students who struggle with lessons taught in the classroom revisit those same skills, concepts, and strategies in the language they are most comfortable with. Our program incorporates social and cultural activities that are designed to bring students together with their peers and foster a sense of cultural pride within the school environment. Our mentors work with students to create positive relationships with school staff and peers. Besides after school groups, our program advocates for student and their families so their voices are heard, and we actively promote family participation in the school system. College visits and career exploration are another part of Puentes mentoring program,

During summer, in collaboration with school Districts in East Multnomah County and All Hand Raised we provide a four weeks program to incoming freshmen. Students receive academic and enrichment classes that mimic the high school schedule. Once completed they are eligible for half of the elective High school credit.
