El Puente Academy Mission & Principles

The mission of the El Puente Academy is “to inspire and nurture leaders for peace and justice.”  The Academy strives to create community, inspire love and caring, achieve mastery and promote peace and justice. These goals are based on a view of human beings as holistic, thriving through collective self-help, seeking safety and requiring respect. In reaching for our major goals, we are guided by the belief that individuals grow and move forward when they are focused on development, receive mentoring, are nurtured in their creativity and understand the importance of unity through diversity.
