ENLACE Los Compañeros strives to increase college readiness, retention, and graduation by supporting first-generation students. This is a long-standing initiative that works collaboratively with the University of New Mexico (UNM) and the Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) to provide mentoring for high school students. The program provides its undergraduate mentors with leadership and professional development training that ultimately benefits cohorts of high school students in the form of mentoring and training. ENLACE mentors serve at Albuquerque High School, Atrisco Heritage Academy High School, Highland High School, Rio Grande High School, Valley High School, and West Mesa High School.
The ENLACE High School Success Program aims to serve a wider range of students within the Albuquerque Public Schools (APS). In addition to supporting cohorts of students with mentoring, mentors provide coaching and tutoring as well as facilitate monthly workshops regarding various topics.
