El Puente means "the bridge" in English, which represents our mission: to be a bridge for UD students to serve the greater Dayton community by helping Latino students to achieve academic success and social well-being. We do this through volunteering at the El Puente Educational Center, a non-profit organization that serves the large and continually growing Hispanic community living in the Dayton area. There club members engage in tutoring and mentoring Kindergarten through high school students. Additionally, we strive to learn about and educate others about those we work with. Thus, our club has a focus on Hispanic culture and immigration awareness here in Dayton and the U.S. as a whole.
