On a recent Friday, nine high school students celebrated their acceptance into college and their other family at Pueblo Nuevo.  They will be the first in their families to attend college and have Mission Graduates––a non-profit focusing on college readiness for youth in San Francisco’s Mission District– to thank for that.  As one student said, “this is like another family but just about college.”

Jerome Pusung, going to San Diego State in the fall, tells us his story.
