SUMMER EXPERIENCE PARTNERS
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.
2021 & Beyond
Summer Search is in the process of solidifying summer experience partnerships for 2021. Listed below are our 2019 partners, most of whom have hosted our students for many years.
2020 presented a variety of challenges, and our partner organizations were impacted directly and acutely by pandemic-related obstacles, including travel and permit restrictions, decreased funding, and tighter scholarship budgets. We are humbled and inspired by their ability to prioritize safety, pivot to new business models through tough times, and remain in partnership with us wherever possible for the long term.
This year 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.
