Puente Learning Center is a highly regarded and critical resource center for the Boyle Heights community and has only just opened it's doors to external community partnerships. They have been extremely gracious in allowing us to utilize their facility and so we ask that all Teach For America staff, corps members and external presenters respect the staff, students and property of the Center.
