Ways to help

College and Career Program: Professional Guidance

High school students in the PUENTE College and Career Program benefit from the support of volunteers from the STEM fields and beyond. Guest speakers visit PUENTE students during their weekly college and career preparedness seminars on campus at our partner sites. And every spring, PUENTE plays host to a variety of professionals who visit the PUENTE campus for our Career Fair. Volunteers support the weekly seminars and the annual career fair by sharing the story of their career path, answering student questions about their profession, or providing informational interview opportunities.

Children’s Programs: Classroom Assistant

Volunteers in the classroom make a difference for children’s lives by assisting PUENTE educators in our Preschool, Charter School, After School, and Summer Camp programs. Volunteer support roles include providing students with extra help or supervision, delivering enrichment activities (e.g., art, music), and assisting teachers with snack and recess time. Volunteering in any children’s classroom requires attending an orientation session, completing a fingerprint scan, and submitting a TB test clearance, for anyone over the age of 18.

ESL Small Talk: Practicing English

ESL Classes empower parents and adults to gain needed language skills so they can engage more actively in their children’s education or improve their economic opportunities. Classes are offered in partnerships with Los Angeles Unified School District and Los Angeles City College. Volunteers engage in English conversation with adult ESL students.

How you help Without the support of our volunteers, we would simply not be able to provide so many opportunities for over 2,000 people every year.
About us Since 1985, PUENTE has been offering a bridge to opportunity by enabling children to develop a lifelong love of learning, helping parents succeed in their role as their children’s first and most important teachers, supporting youth as they move toward high school graduation and beyond, and assisting adults in need of English-language fluency and modern workforce skills. All of PUENTE’s programs have developed as the result of the organization’s respectful and ongoing dialogue with the communities it serves, ensuring that the programs are a direct response to the training and educational needs of its constituents.
