Summer Search is Coming to

East San Jose!

Summer Search's Vision

Summer Search envisions a Bay Area in which all young people, regardless of the personal and systemic barriers facing them, can discover their purpose and lead their families and communities to THRIVE. Through our holistic suite of programming, we provide 7-9 years of support to build purpose and financial wellbeing through mentoring, summer experiences, post-secondary advising, and career coaching.

Doubling Down on East San Jose

The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated and exacerbated the barriers facing students from marginalized communities in pursuing their academic and career goals. In 2021, Santa Clara County alone saw a 9% increase in the high school drop-out rate—87% of those dropping out were young people of color. No other organization in East San Jose offers the innovative consolidation of holistic and long-term services as Summer Search. 

To ensure we can fulfill our long-term commitment to this community, we are raising $500,000 -- the first two years of operating expenses to support 430 Summer Searchers -- before recruiting our newest class of sophomores this fall.
