Job Description:

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. To learn more, please visit About College Track D.C. Metro Region Last year, College Track expanded to our 10th location - and first on the East Coast, thanks to a $10 million commitment from the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation to bring our college completion program to Kevin's hometown of Prince George's County, Maryland. This year, we are opening our second center in the D.C. Metro Area in Ward 8 of Washington, D.C. A third center will launch in Ward 1 or 4 of D.C. in 2021. Our Impact 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.
