Puente Students Build Community on San Bruno Mountain

ropes courseOn Wednesday October 5, 50 students from Skyline College’s Puente learning community spent the day on San Bruno Mountain at the White Hawk Ropes Course. The entire day was facilitated by amazing high school students who are part of Jefferson Union High School District’s Wilderness Program.

Puente students participated in challenges that encouraged team building, problem-solving, and personal growth.  In addition to several “on the ground” team challenges, individual students faced extreme (but safe) “ropes” challenges that took them high up into the trees while their peers cheered them on. Overall, the day resulted in a stronger Puente familia—new bonds between classmates, trust amongst the overall group, and deep appreciation for each other’s courage and strength.
