Welcome New York City

Since 2003, 1,341 high school sophomores reflecting The City have chosen to become Summer Searchers.

We offer young people from Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx year-round 1:1 and group mentoring, transformational experiential learning, and legit CONNECTs for the real world.

NYC Summer Searchers grow into their truest selves while receiving sustained support during the critical transition from high school, through graduation, and beyond.

Land Acknowledgement 

Our New York City offices reside on the unceded land of the Mohican, Munsee Lenape, Schaghticoke, and Wappinger peoples, past and present. We honor with gratitude the land itself, and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.

We recognize this as just one step in acknowledging the history of forced removal of indigenous people from their land and our work toward racial justice.

We ask you to join us in acknowledging the Mohican, Munsee Lenape, Schaghticoke, and Wappinger communities, their elders both past and present, and future generations.
