The mission of El Puente Academy is to inspire and nurture leadership for peace and justice. We strive in all activities to create community, develop love and caring, achieve mastery and promote peace and justice. These goals are based on a view of human beings as holistic, thriving in collective self-help, seeking safety and requiring respect. In reaching for our major goals, we depend on a belief that individuals grow and move forward when they are focused on development, are mentored, are allowed to be creative and understand the importance of unity through diversity.
