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 New York City

We partner with young people from all over New York City to grow into the visions of their full selves through year-round mentoring, summers of experiential learning, and sustained support during the critical transition from high school to become thriving adults.

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.

The NYC Impact

At just our New York City location, we serve more than 327 high school students, 364 post-secondary students, and 311 alumni.  We're proud of our 98% high school graduation rate and 95% college acceptance rate.
