2012 Silicon Valley Where Change Begins Dinner   


On Thursday, November 8, 2012, Summer Search Silicon Valley will hold its annual Where Change Begins Dinner. This year’s signature event promises to be a very special one as it is the 5th Anniversary dinner and will celebrate the first class of Summer Search Silicon Valley students to graduate from college!

Summer Search has been creating life-changing opportunities for low-income high school students in the Bay Area since 1990.

Last year, 97% of Summer Search Silicon Valley students went on to college and 91% of those were the first in their families to go to college. Historically, 85% of Summer Search students graduate from college, compared to only 11% of their low-income peers.

Join us to celebrate this remarkable program and help Summer Search Silicon Valley serve even more students in our community.
