PUENTE Project: The Mentor's Guide.
Maestas-Flores, Margarita; Chavez, Mauro
This manual was developed for individuals serving as mentors in Evergreen Valley College's PUENTE Project, a program which integrates the skills of an English teacher, a Hispanic counselor, and Hispanic professionals/mentors into a team structure in an attempt to assist Hispanic students in making academic improvements, to build self-confidence, and to motivate students to achieve career and educational goals. The manual covers the following: (1) a description of the PUENTE Project, including information on the PUENTE model, the program sequence, and data on student achievement; (2) an examination of the role of a mentor; (3) an article on "The Value of Mentoring," by Mauro Chavez; and (4) information on the process whereby students contact and set up formal and informal interviews with their mentors. Appendices include a copy of the student guide for interviewing mentors; a list of student assignments for PUENTE mentor activities; a sample student paper on "Career Decisions"; lists of personnel and colleges involved in the project; a sample mentor profile form, and a PUENTE Project booklet.
