Summer Search

Summer Search’s Annual Leadership Meeting is held once per year and is an opportunity to bring together the organization’s national and regional boards, staff, alumni, and key funders and partners to collaboratively discuss vision, direction and strategy. The 2014 Annual Meeting was held in Seattle, the home of one of seven Summer Search offices. Summer Search’s mission is to produce socially responsible college graduates who have transformed what they believe is possible for themselves through a program that integrates: year-round professional mentorship, summer experiential learning, individualized college access and financial aid counseling, as well as a consistent network of support in college and beyond.
