About College Track
College Track is a comprehensive college completion program that
empowers students from underserved communities to graduate from
college. From ninth grade through college graduation, our 10-year
program removes the academic, financial, and social-emotional
barriers that prevent low-income and first-generation students from
earning their college degree. In 1997, we started with 25 students
in East Palo Alto, and today, we have ten centers located in
underserved communities across California, Colorado, Louisiana, and
the D.C. Metro Area with more than 3,000 students on the path to
upward social mobility.
College Track students graduate from college at a rate that is more
than double the national average for low-income and
first-generation students. Five years out of college, our graduates
are employed full-time, and over 85% report earnings greater than
their parents. By helping our students maximize the value of their
four-year college degree, which includes minimizing student loan
debt, securing internships, and limiting the need to work while in
college--we prepare them to succeed in the 21st century
At College Track, our values drive the way we do our work, and we
look for individuals who share our passion. We blend an
entrepreneurial spirit with our nonprofit roots, cultivating a
