Our Approach

Our 7+ Year program aims to help students create bright futures where they thrive academically, financially, career-wise, and within their relationships. 

Summer Search Bay Area

We provide year-round group and individual mentoring, 
transformational summer experiences, and post-secondary 
preparations and advising for Bay-area youth.

Our Program

Every day we connect students to expansive opportunities. And we show them they possess not just the talent, but also the inner strength to carve their place in the world. Because when each of us cultivates the power and courage inside us, we become unstoppable.

Bay Area Impact

At our Bay Area locations, we serve more than 453 high school students, 967 post-secondary students, and 2,210 alumni. We're proud of our 100% high school graduation rate and 94% college acceptance rate.
