Create a More Just and Equitable World

We Build a Great Team

College Track maintains a dynamic, fun, and positive work environment by hiring talented people who share our desire to transform the lives of today’s youth.

When our students succeed in college, we know that we are furthering the work to provide choices, opportunities, and freedom to young people—having a significant impact on our nation’s culture, society, and economy.

We believe diverse perspectives lead to stronger ideas, striking innovation, and effective practices, accelerating progress toward College Track’s mission. Therefore, we prioritize building diverse teams that reflect the experiences of our students to ensure our community shapes our approach. We also cultivate an inclusive environment and culture of belonging—a critical step in our pursuit of equity.

Being a member of the College Track community is wonderful. It’s more than just a place to work.  It is a family.  The expectations are high but the humor, humility, and support of my team make it a joy. Furthermore, our students are fantastic. With each day, they get closer to a college degree. It is awesome being part of this village and watching them grow.

Christopher Vick, Academic Affairs Director, College Track at The Durant Center

College Track is the best place I have worked in my whole career as an educator. I have grown as a leader, gained incredible experiences, and worked alongside amazing people. Our team is deeply committed to our students, and seeing them thrive inspires me everyday. Working toward educational equity in partnership with our communities is at the core of my work and purpose and I am happy I can do that here.

Marisa Ramirez, Site Director, College Track Watts

College Track is my second home. It allows me to work with students, who, like myself, are the first in their families to earn a degree. Each day I am able to utilize our resources to help make students more competitive applicants with the freedom to pursue their dreams and passions. This work means each day I can learn from youth, see and feel my impact, and watch young people blossom into their full potential. I have my dream career!

Ashley Allston, Student Life Director, College Track Oakland

We value talent and diversity.

While our team is spread across California, Colorado, Louisiana, and the D.C. Metro Area, we work and collaborate as one—and we unite throughout the year to celebrate our wins and milestones. Our goal is to ensure that every staff member feels empowered by their work, has the support to thrive in their role, and the opportunities to grow as an expert in their field.

Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Philosophy

College Track’s mission to ensure our students earn a college degree calls us to disrupt historic injustices, racism, and systemic oppression. Too often, our institutions and systems limit students’ opportunities, rather than set them up for a life of self-determination and freedom. College Track’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion derives from our unwavering belief that all students can, and one day will, experience a world that honors their inherent talents, gifts, and knowledge. 

We believe diverse perspectives lead to stronger ideas, striking innovation, and effective practices, accelerating progress toward College Track’s mission. Therefore, we prioritize building diverse teams that reflect the experiences of our students to ensure our community shapes our approach. We also cultivate an inclusive environment and culture of belonging—a critical step in our pursuit of equity. 

College Track welcomes and reveres the spectrum of human diversity, and stands against bigotry, racism, sexism, heteronormativity, and all other biases that seek to undermine the dignity of all people.  The barriers our students and staff face are deeply entrenched in our society. Therefore, we regularly examine the impact of our policies, processes, and procedures, and refine  them to build a more equitable community.

 

We Embody Our Values

Our core values of commitment, passion, joy, authenticity, and excellence keep us grounded in our work and connected to one another-even when we’re miles apart. Dedication to these values informs our recruitment, hiring, retention, and training processes. “Values All-Stars” are acknowledged monthly through internal communications, where individuals who best exemplify the spirit of each value are celebrated. 

Commitment

We have an unwavering belief in our students. We know every College Track scholar can make it to and through college—and it is our job to coach them to do so.

Joy

We create environments rich with smiles and laughter. Hard work and joy are not mutually exclusive. The joy of doing what we love every day makes College Track a great place to work and learn. Joy inspires us to be our best, to celebrate our strengths, and to share rejuvenating moments of delight with others. We are most impactful when we are a happy, thriving community.

Passion

We are dedicated to changing our nation’s college completion story. We are devoted to building communities in which every student has the chance to earn a four-year college degree. We achieve our mission of equity and justice through our singular goal: college completion for all of our students.

Authenticity

We believe relationships matter. We value honest communication, strong relationships, and a familial spirit. We build respect and trust as a team, and expect our students to do the same. Our differences in life experience do not divide us—rather, they are critical to our success.

Excellence

Our students deserve nothing but the best. We hold high expectations for our staff and students because we know what is possible. Each of our students and team members has potential—which will only be reached if we are accountable and disciplined. We thrive by using data to inform our work, giving and receiving feedback, and continuously reflecting on what our best can be.

We appreciate hard work.
