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 Philadelphia

We partner with young people across the Greater Philadelphia Area, West Philadelphia, Olney, Roxborough, North Philadelphia as they navigate systems of oppression and strengthen the skills they need to thrive in school and in life.

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 Impact

At our Philadelphia location, we serve more than 130 high school students, 129 post-secondary students, and 142 alumni. We're proud of our 100% high school graduation rate and 100% college acceptance rate.
