Our Bridge to English program started in 2003, is one of the longest-running educational programs The Palapa Society offers. The program runs October through June (annually), offering Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced classes 3 days a week, 3 times a day, to students ages 6-17.
The primary focus is to help students acquire and refine English skills beginning at an early age through their high school years. Volunteers work with over 100 students annually. Learning a new language is an important skill but can be a challenge. The Palapa Society’s Puente Program helps them meet the learning curve by utilizing small class sizes and a systematic, activity-based curriculum. Additional one-on-one help and guidance ensures no child is left behind. The mission of this program is to guide children in their quest to speak, read, write, and comprehend English.
