Taking Care of Our Community

COVID-19 Updates

The health and safety of the Summer Search community is our priority.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided not to send students on summer experiences this summer. We are supporting the connection, well-being, and growth of Summer Searchers through continued mentoring, digital/virtual learning, direct financial support, and sharing resources (see below).

COVID-19 Resources

We're gathering resources to support our community during this crisis, and updating them regularly. This page includes resources that anyone can access, regardless of where you live.

Additional resources specific to your local community can be found on your Summer Search site page: Bay Area, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, & Seattle.
