Program Mentoring

Over the years, thousands of professionals: judges, doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs, and civic leaders have taken time from their busy schedules to serve as volunteer mentors to Puente students in programs across the state.

  • Meet with the student at least three times a semester.
  • Contact the student at least once a month to help maintain a relationship.
  • Help the student with mentor-related classroom assignments.
  • Acquaint the student with their own educational and career background and professional expertise.
