Call for volunteers!

Tax prep volunteers needed ASAP

It’s tax time, and Puente needs several volunteers to join our pro bono tax prep program. Help your neighbors keep more of their money between now and April. The position requires an online training and a few hours a day, twice a week at Puente offices during tax season.

For details on the tax prep program, please contact Rita Mancera at or (650) 879-1691 x 102.

Tutors needed! Change someone’s life.

Puente needs 3 Plaza Comunitaria tutors who are Spanish-English bilingual and comfortable teaching materials ranging from high school-level reading and writing to math and geography.

Puente also needs two GED tutors: one in Pescadero, one in La Honda. (Need to speak Spanish)

Puente is seeking 3 Bachillerato (Mexican High School degree) tutors who are native Spanish speakers and college graduates: one in La Honda, two in Half Moon Bay.

We are looking for several people to serve as mentors for high school youth. This position expects volunteers to guide and advise students about career options, the importance of higher education or vocational training, and life skills like getting a driver’s license or managing money.  Mentors serve as positive role models and allies for youth. A mentor also would talk to a high school mentee on a regular basis (weekly/bi-monthly/monthly) about school assignments, tests, study skills, and course planning, especially if the student is struggling in school.

For more information on ALL volunteer opportunities, call (650) 879-1691 ext. 102, email Abby Mohaupt at
