Our passion and hard work will take us from practice to the playing field, but our success will rely upon the support of our friends and families and upon all of those willing to donate to this important cause. Together, we can tackle Alzheimer’s!

San Francisco Students Back On Track is a Doing Good recipient – 4/15/2014

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

About the organization:

Back on Track was founded in 1988 as an interfaith collaborative effort between Third Baptist Church and Temple Emanu-El. The unique partnership has crossed religious and cultural differences to build bridges of opportunity for K-12 students. As a non-denominational community-based program, Back on Track has served more than 2,000 young people from diverse multicultural populations throughout San Francisco.
Back on Track students come from all walks of life but share two important characteristics: intelligence and a desire to succeed academically. Most are the first in their family to go to college. More than half of our students live in the Western Addition with the remainder commuting from other neighborhoods throughout San Francisco including:

Bayview/Hunters Point, Fillmore, Mission District,
Chinatown, Tenderloin, Richmond, Sunset

The program succeeds as a result of total community involvement: volunteer tutors, corporate and private donors, community partners, and of course, our Back on Track families. Volunteer tutors from all over the Bay Area are the key to our ability to provide a quality academic program. Our tutors find satisfaction in observing academic progress, empowering students to become lifelong learners, and playing a pivotal role in the life of a young person. The staff encourage these successful relationships by providing individual academic support, ongoing tutor training, parent workshops, regular check-in's, a computer lab and library, cultural enrichment activities, and a broad spectrum of fun, educational field trips. To stimulate a passion for reading, Back on Track maintains an extensive library of reading materials including age appropriate books, reference materials, magazines, and newspapers. Our textbooks are aligned with the San Francisco Unified School District.
