Funded Programs

We work one-on-one with students and help support an Academic Recovery Program for students who struggle academically to improve their academic success

We have linked local middle school students with Stanford student role models and resources. Our goal is to expose students to college and careers, and make students feel like they belong in higher education.

We helped launch Classroom Connection, a UC Santa Cruz (UCSC) program that has evolved into an exciting partnership between Puente, the La Honda-Pescadero Unified School District and Merrill College, one of the ten colleges at UCSC.

We have two scholarship funds named for individuals who exemplify our Foundation’s mission
