“This [trip] was by far the best experience I could ever have. I didn’t just experience something great, I met amazing people who I consider my friends and even family.”
“Summer Search is real. It’s transformative. It’s deep, uncomfortable, and unconditional. It helps you imagine new possibilities, tap into your internal strengths, and achieve incredible things.”
As a student twenty years ago, I encountered Summer Search as a series of experiences and conversations that helped me learn about myself. I never knew why these experiences were so transformative. Now I know that Summer Search takes a developmental approach with each student, using the same model, but requiring incredible skill and flexibility to meet each student where they are in their journey. The mentoring is tailored specifically to each student in how we build relationships, promote reflective conversations, and celebrate tangible successes that create a storyline for each student that they have an important voice, are capable and are the leaders our world needs. As a student I saw myself as just another kid, now I know all along Summer Search saw something much more!
