The mission of Summer Search is to find resilient low-income high school students and inspire them to become responsible and altruistic leaders by providing year-round mentoring, life-changing summer experiences, college advising, and a lasting support network.
What We Do
Summer Search is working to ensure that students have every opportunity to achieve their potential in school, work, and life.
Through a combination of mentoring and transformative experiences, our comprehensive program--which is grounded in current research on adolescence--capitalizes on the unique developmental opportunities present during this period for young people.
We partner with our students to support them in navigating and challenging systemic barriers to post-secondary education, workforce participation, and financial stability so that every Summer Searcher can thrive.
