Puente seeks two Spanish-speaking tutors to mentor adult clients who are in the middle of earning their GED (General Educational Development/high school equivalency) certification. One tutor should have some affinity for teaching science, the other for high school-level math. Both positions require a commitment of 2 hours per week.

Puente needs at least 4 volunteer tutors for Plaza Comunitaria, the Mexican government-sponsored program that helps adults earn their primary or secondary school certificates. Fluency in Spanish is a must.
