By introducing more time with peers—in group sessions facilitated by our mentors—we are using the role of peers to help build and strengthen college-going identities among our students.
We look forward to welcoming a second group of sophomores into the pilot in Text messaging is a popular way our students communicate, so we launched a two-year pilot with technology company Signal Vine to test integrating texting into our mentoring model. Through October , Bay Area junior and senior high school students will receive actionable texts twice per month as they prepare for their second summer experiences and college enrollment—from college deadlines to event registration to filling out a FAFSA. The pilot will measure what impact sending targeted logistical texts has on student engagement and outcomes.
This past summer, the largest class of Summer Search cohorts ever—nearly 1, students—hiked 31, miles, paddled 16, miles, climbed 32, feet, and completed 27, community service hours and 13, 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.
We also unveiled our 25th Anniversary Timeline , a crowdsourcing and storytelling platform that allowed our entire Summer Search community to submit their own stories, photos, videos and reflections from the past 25 years, as well as their hopes for the future. We put a significant investment of resources and time into leveraging our social media channels to celebrate and amplify our 25th anniversary.
The culmination of our 25th anniversary took place in New York City during Leadership Week , which began with alumnus and National Board Member Jabali Sawicki leading a powerful panel discussion at our annual meeting pictured with Amy Saxton on changing the narrative for young men of color. Then, more than alumni, friends and supporters gathered to celebrate our 25th anniversary at our welcome home celebration.
Alumni from across the country shared their inspiring stories throughout the night, with alumnus Levar Smith, professor at Morehouse College, delivering a moving keynote speech. We rely on our generous individual donors and institutional partners to support our mission and help us scale our efforts to reach more students. Click the buttons below to expand the list. This major investment will enable Summer Search to dramatically increase the number of high school and college students we serve throughout the Bay Area, and it brings us closer to reaching our strategic goals to strengthen and scale our work.
As a committed member of the Bay Area community, we salute the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee's commitment to creating a lasting community impact through the 50 Fund at Super Bowl As part of their Open Homes philanthropic program, Airbnb partnered with Summer Search in the summer of to provide free accommodations to Summer Search students and their families in New York City and San Francisco seeking to travel for college visits, freshman orientations and graduation ceremonies. College visits are an important part of identifying the best-fit school for our students to call home for four years, yet visiting a campus or attending orientation can be an unanticipated expense for students and parents with already limited financial resources.
Traveling for college graduation ceremonies can present a similar challenge. By building strong partnerships with like-minded organizations such as Airbnb, we help students cover those hidden costs. News of the partnership was quickly picked up by the International Business Times and Politico and featured in a blog post by Airbnb.
With his support as founding board chair, Summer Search had the flexibility to experiment in those important first years, leading to the expansion and deepening of our program model to include a second summer trip, ongoing mentoring and college counseling for high school seniors—gradually turning a simple idea into a powerful intervention. John and Osterweis Capital Management have been instrumental supporters of our work during each of the first 25 years of Summer Search, and as Trustee Emeritus, John continues to provide support and leadership to the organization.

We weren't that big of a city then but it seemed the entire community would attend. Elizabeth A. The Orange Men parades were common as well but were stopped. He refused to wear pants in the dead of winter just like you. My son is five and resembles James in so many ways.
