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 a college degree. In 1997, we started with 25 students in East Palo Alto, and today, we have nine centers located in underserved communities across California, Colorado, and Louisiana, 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 percent report earnings greater than their parents. By helping our students maximize the value of their four-year college degree--minimize student loan debt, secure internships, and limit the need to work while in college--we prepare them to succeed in the 21st century economy.
We get up every morning dedicated to creating a more just and equitable world, where a college degree is the expectation and not the exception for all students. Our alumni are tomorrow’s leaders, mentors, and innovators, who return to their communities as role models and reaffirm that the American Dream is possible.
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 dynamic culture where everyone's contributions are valued and encouraged.
