"Puentes Made" By Rachel Applewhite


Puentes Hacia El Futuro
 was developed to address the need for education support among the large and growing Mexican immigrant population in South Philadelphia.
Puentes Hacia El Futuro pairs elementary and middle school children with tutors/mentors who areundergraduate/graduatestudents, and community professionals. Our volunteers provide students with homework and literacy support, as well as guide them in exploring the Mexican culture and Spanish language, identity,and self-esteem. Relevant health education is also provided for the children and families.
