The company I work for works with College Tracks by providing standardized test preparation assistance. We typically work with a small group of students for 2-4 months leading up to an exam. College Tracks steps in to provide so many services, all of the services, that so many of these students need in the college process. As a volunteer, I have appreciated how easy College Tracks has made it for me to jump right in with the students and focus on what they need that I can give them. They have been flexible with my schedule in setting up sessions. College Tracks is making a tangible difference in the lives of all of its students.

I've worked with well over 300 organizations. College Tracks ranks among the most impactful and least egotistical - it will do whatever it needs to do to have the biggest impact in terms of helping more kids go to college and be successful in their college experience. On a more macro level, it's actually created an awareness and a movement around a cause -- bringing sector leaders on board (from education, govt and business) to 'own the cause' and create long-term change in the community.

I have known about CollegeTracks work in the community since their inception and the impact they make daily on the lives of students and families in our community who don't have the expertise to get to college and find enough money to attend once accepted. CollegeTracks has a unique model of recruiting and working with students who can sometimes slip through the cracks in the system. This model works for our community and ensures that students working with CollegeTracks meet every milestone necessary to get the best opportunities available. CollegeTracks also has an innovative way of individualizing the college access process, therefore students don't feel as if they are cogs in a factory chain.
