Community college puente a validating model of education
All PUENTE Mentors are trained to follow mentoring guidelines and serve as successful career role models to their student mentees.
Our experience shows that mentoring is inspiring to BOTH mentors and their Puente student mentee.
Through his work, Josh explores the societal expectations placed on communities of color and Queer communities across the state, regionally, nationally and globally.
