summer Program Partners

The Summer Search journey begins with the breakthrough experiences our students take part in during the summers of their sophomore and junior years of high school. Thanks to the support of those who have devoted their lives to the development of young people from all categories of privilege, Summer Search is the largest provider of summer experiential trips for low-income students in the country.

We pay tribute to the organizations whose scholarships and equipment donations make these life-changing passages possible.
