About Us

In alignment with the latest guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health we have made the decision to suspend all Right Track in-person activities until April 10, 2020. Emails have been sent to all youth applicants about their current status in the program, and next steps to prepare for a summer position with Right Track. If you applied for Right Track, but did not get an email please email your first and last name and what your question or concern is to the Right Track team and we will respond as quickly as possible.

In Saint Paul, 24 percent of youth are unemployed, including disproportionately high percentages of youth of color. Our city struggles with poverty and racial disparities. However, our diversity is an asset. 40 percent of residents are people of color, and more than 23,000 businesses are located here. 

"Right Track is a hugely important part of the work we’re doing to close the achievement gap, to close the income gap and to create pathways to success for every young adult in our community."

— FORMER MAYOR CHRIS COLEMAN

That's where Right Track comes in. Right Track connects Saint Paul youth with meaningful training, work, and career exploration opportunities so they are better prepared to thrive in the workforce.

Right Track was launched in 2014 by Mayor Chris Coleman, Saint Paul Public Schools Superintendent Valeria Silva and Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce President Matt Kramer to establish a pipeline of career development opportunities for Saint Paul youth.

Right Track operates out of the City of Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation, building on the department's long history of providing summer jobs for Saint Paul youth.
