Location: 4301 3rd St, San Francisco 94124 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.....org.

This combines a small amount of direct instruction along with targeted homework help/tutoring. Be part of the “Catalyst for Change”: Tutor: Tutors and study group leaders get to work with students not only on their daily homework assignments, but also support study skill and organizational skill development. Tutors are, effectively, teachers, in a small group or 1:1 capacity. Mentor: Tutors 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.
