who you came here to be.

We work with young people short on opportunity and long on what it takes to chart their own course in life.

It's about taking what you've got inside of you -- right here, right now -- and putting it to powerful use in your life. 

Because you're too awesome not to go big.

Summer Searchers are:

  • Resilient, determined, caring and potential leaders
  • High school sophomores at a Summer Search partner school
  • Qualified to receive free or reduced lunch according to federal guidelines
  • Available during the summers following both sophomore and junior year
