The Puente Project is an academic preparation program that has improved the college-going rate of tens of thousands of California's educationally underserved students.

Its mission is to increase the number of educationally underserved students who:

  • Enroll in four-year colleges and universities
  • Earn college degrees
  • Return to the community as mentors and leaders of future generations

The Chabot College Puente Project is a two semester, accelerated writing, counseling and mentoring program with a curriculum that focuses on Mexican American/Latino history, authors and issues. It is designed for students who want to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The program is open to all students who meet the qualifications for enrollment. Students will be required to participate in all course and program activities.


Chabot students must:

  • Be interested in transferring to and graduating from a 4 year university or college
  • Have GPA of 2.0 or higher. Students who do not meet this criterion should submit a letter of recommendation from an instructor or counselor with the application.
  • Have willingness to learn about the Mexican American/Latino experience
  • Have willingness to participate in career and college field trips, service learning, and mentoring events that take place outside of regular class time
  • Be eligible to enroll in PSCN classes, English 1 (fall semester) or English 4 or 7 (spring semester)
