And every spring, PUENTE plays host to a variety of professionals who visit the PUENTE campus for our Career Fair.

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.
