Help new drivers learn the rules of the road

Puente needs several short-term tutors, fluent in Spanish, to mentor adults preparing to take their driver’s license written exam at the DMV. In January, Puente will host evening tutoring sessions and seeks bilingual volunteers to work with different sizes of groups throughout the month.

To volunteer, contact Community Outreach Coordinator Ben Ranz at (650) 879-1691 x 143 or email Ben Ranz.


Help adults get their GED and become citizens

Every year, Puente helps local adults realize their dream of earning a high school degree; others become American citizens. Be a part of the transformation – sign up to help with tutoring (in Spanish) and citizenship requirements.


Seeking mentors to keep high school kids on track

Puente is committed to supporting our local youth all the way through high school and college. Sometimes by the time anyone realizes a student is struggling, it’s too late. Puente sees 12 mentors who can commit to spending time with a student one day each week, preferably on Wednesday. Mentors will help ensure their mentee is getting good grades, particularly in English and Algebra. College readiness is also a key goal.
