BENEFITING: Summer Search
ORGANIZER: Summer Search
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
What? Summer Search is a national youth development organization. Our mission is to help teenagers from low-income households transform what they believe is possible for themselves and develop the skills they need to become college-educated leaders who give back to their communities.
How? Summer Search's provides students with year-round professional mentoring, learning programs, college access counseling and in-college support services.
Our Impact: 79% of Summer Search NYC students have earned a college degree, compared to just 10% of their peers from low-income households.
Support our NYC Half Marathon Team!
The mighty Summer Search NYC Half Team is racing to ensure that more youth will have access to Summer Search's life-changing services, defying the statistics that predict that these young men and women will not obtain a college degree. When a Summer Search student graduates from college, it changes their future--and the future of their family and community--forever.
