Summer Search is a national youth development organization that has been around for more than 25 years.
We focus on bridging the educational opportunity gap faced by students from low-income backgrounds, particularly students of color. We do this by partnering with high schools and families in underserved communities to increase the number of students who successfully enter and complete college. Through a unique combination of mentoring, experiential opportunities, college advising and support - Summer Search students strengthen the skills they need to thrive in school and in life.
Often the first in their families to earn a college degree, our alumni lead the way and become socially responsible leaders in their communities. It’s a long-term investment and it works.
Want to get involved? Support our NYC Marathon team! Team Summer Search is racing to ensure that more youth will have access to our life-changing program, defying the statistics that predict that these young men and women will not obtain a college degree. When a Summer Search student graduates from college, it changes their future--and the future of their family and community--forever.
