For Funders

CCC’s award-winning OnTrack! program is grounded in extensive research and is already demonstrating progress toward targeted outcomes.  We are confident in the OnTrack! program and the key gaps in service it is filling.  Specifically,

  • OnTrack! works with younger students at a critical time in their lives, when they are making important decisions about whether or not to stay in school.  Very few other organizations are supporting youth at this age.
  • OnTrack! reaches all students in 8th and 9th grades. Even in schools where there are many college access providers, a significant number of the students in the school do not receive services because most programs only serve a small number of students.  CCC partners with schools to provide programming to all students in a grade, reaching even those who would not otherwise seek support.
  • OnTrack! helps combat DC’s drop-out crisis.  In Washington DC’s Wards 7 & 8, 60% of students will drop out before the 10th grade.  Programs that wait until the 11th and 12th grade to support students arrive too late in the process.  Since college and career exploration is a proven strategy for reducing dropouts among high poverty youth, CCC helps combat our community’s drop out crisis.

We hope that you will take the opportunity to read more about CCC’s theory of change, the OnTrack! program design, our evaluation methods, and preliminary results.  We schedule site visits regularly throughout the year and would love to demonstrate our program in action.
