What is College Track?

Founded in 1997, College Track exists to help students, who have the desire but lack the resources and support, to attain higher education and fulfill their own best promise. We work with students from historically under-served populations: 99% of our students are of color and all come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Through a comprehensive, three-pronged program of Academic Affairs, Student Life, and College Affairs, College Track guides students to successfully complete high school and graduate from college. College Track San Francisco uses a site-based approach, meaning that students go to schools all over San Francisco and attend programming at our site after-school an average of three days per week throughout high school. For more information on the organization, go to www.collegetrack.org.

Position Description:

College Preparedness Plan Case Managers will work with small groups of 4-6 students on a weekly basis known as Study Squads. Each month, students will be given a College Preparedness Plan (CPP) designed by the Academic Resource Specialist that is individually tailored to his or her needs. Study Squads will be organized by placing students who are enrolled in similar classes in similar schools together. The CPPCM will be responsible for leading activities and meeting with students based around their plan with the intention of improving specific study habits and discrete skills. In addition, the CPPCM will be responsible for evaluating student work produced around the CPP and tracking progress throughout the semester. The CPPCM must be comfortable using past data as well as weekly observations to meet student’s need continually throughout the semester.

Tutor: CPPCMs will get to work with students primarily on habits and skills that are crucial to success in high school and beyond. Implement student-specific activities geared towards the development of study strategies as well as English and mathematics skill development.

Mentor: CCPCM’s are not only tutors, but also serve as mentors. Get to know and develop relationships with students while developing your classroom management skills. Be a role model for students and maybe even change their lives!

Grow: Through professional developments, meetings, and trainings, learn more tutoring and teaching techniques and develop skills in cultural competency, data-analysis, youth development, and more.
