In 2015, Summer Search celebrated its 25th anniversary, and we are humbled by the outpouring of love, goodwill and the lives forever changed because of your support. Thank you for helping us reach this significant milestone. Since 1990, we have proudly supported more than 5,700 young people on their journeys to become their best selves. More than 92% of our students are the first in their families to go to college, 89% enroll in college and seven in ten earn a bachelor’s degree in six years.
This past summer, the largest class of Summer Search cohorts ever—nearly 1,000 students—hiked 31,730 miles, paddled 16,415 miles, climbed 32,860 feet, and completed 27,803 community service hours and 13,924 hours of academic study in 20 countries, with 30 states visited! More importantly, these challenging summer experiences helped our students discover how capable they really are and what they have to offer to the world.
