PUENTE supports our students, their families, and the community as a whole by giving over 2,000 individuals each year access to resources for success in school and in life.
During COVID-19, PUENTE is distributing free meals, sharing laptops for high-quality learning, and offering integrated pupil supports for health and mental health.
Community members empower themselves through immigrant workshops—offered in partnership with local immigration law firms—and tenant workshops—offered in partnership with USC Office of Civic Engagement.
PUENTE offers test prep classes with dedicated volunteer instructors who mentor and guide our community members towards success in becoming new citizens.
Parent support groups provide a safe and supportive environment for the PUENTE parents to engage in peer-to-peer learning and exchange. The workshops strengthen families and empower parents in their roles as their child’s first teachers.
