Summer Search

Summer Search (“SS”) works to provide low-income high school students with opportunities and support to develop confidence, character and skills to complete college and become leaders. Partnering with local high schools and established, well-known corporations, SS provides academic and social support resources from sophomore year of high school through second year of post-secondary education. An active, established alumni network provides ongoing resources after completion of the SS program.

NPI Rating: BUY

Summer Search operates out of seven offices in six cities, offering ~1,700 students life-changing opportunities in 2010. Summer Search provides clear transparency to operations and financials, but a continued decrease in annual revenues could be a cause for alarm and further transparency at the regional level could open additional resources for local offices.
