We are Summer Search, a $20M college success nonprofit in
five regions around the country. Since 1990, we’ve worked to close the
opportunity gap for low-income students through professional mentoring,
transformative summer experiences, and start-to-finish college support.
By making a long-term commitment to students – from
sophomore year of high school through college graduation – we help them
strengthen the critical skills they need to become college-educated leaders who
give back to their families and communities. Our approach isn’t quick or easy,
but it works. 77% of Summer Search students are on track to get a college
degree, in contrast with fewer than 10% of their peers.
Our energetic team draws inspiration from our students
every day, and we derive great personal and professional gratification from
being part of their journeys. With a values-driven culture that strives for
excellence and celebrates our people, we are proud to have been recognized by
the Nonprofit Times’ 50 Best Places to Work For in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
