breaking through

The Summer Search journey begins with the breakthrough experiences our students take part in during the summers of their sophomore and junior years of high school.

Thanks to the support of those who have devoted their lives to the development of young people, thousands of Summer Searchers have had life-changing experiences. We pay tribute to the organizations whose scholarships and equipment donations make this possible.


Summer Search is in the process of solidifying summer experience partnerships for 2024.

These past few years we have unfortunately had to say goodbye or pause some valued partners, as we reduced some of our own program budgets, and some partners closed their doors or shifted their offerings during the pandemic.

Through creativity and adaptability, other partners continue to offer robust programming to help our students meet their goals and the long-term goals of the Summer Search program. We are proud and honored to work alongside our summer experience partners, and we are saddened to discontinue relationships with partners that have poured energy and care into our students over the years.
