We are so thrilled to invite you to our 2024 Gala! 

This year we're celebrating 20 years of impact since the founding of the Summer Search Seattle chapter in 2003. We’re so excited to gather our entire community to celebrate two decades of empowering young people in South King County - and to raise critical funds to pave the way for the next 20 and beyond.

We hope that you will be able to join us in our celebration of our collective achievements as an organization and to honor our incredible participants, alumni, and their families.

ABOUT

At Summer Search, we believe our world is better off when everyone can discover their purpose.

Our mission is to unleash students' potential through mentoring and transformative experiences. Beginning in their sophomore year of high school through post-secondary completion, we partner with our students to help them discover that they possess the talent and strength to carve their place in the world.

Our Impact:

  • 100% of our students graduate from high school on time.
  • 69% earn a bachelor’s degree within 6 years of high school graduation, compared to 21% of their peers.
  • The majority of our alumni hold debt of less than $30K, compared to $50K for adults aged 22–35 who borrowed money for college.
