Summer Search helped me realize how important I am and to keep fighting for what I believe what the rest of the world has gone out.

They were my emotional outlet; I don't like to talk about myself, so it was good to let it all out and grow from feeling like a victim to feeling super empowered.
Though my trip was a very difficult emotional experience, my life as an alumni changes me ever day. I have learned so much about myself and giving and I OWE so much to SS and my mentor, Jay Jacobs.
Summer Search allowed me to explore things I would have never done. Before Summer Search my outlook on life was negative and I lacked something, something in which I never thought I would get from this program. This program helped me find a more positive outlook on many things.
Summer Search changed my life! They helped me grow in my relationships with everyone around me and most of all to grow as a person. It is hard to find words to describe how much Summer Search has meant to me.
Summer Search has been the catalyst of my change. It has opened my eyes to the tremendous amount of opportunities out there. I give Summer Search a 4 only because no one is perfect and there is always room for improvement.
Summer Search helped me realize my anger issues, become more confident and feel comfortable in unfamiliar surroundings. It connected me with my current job at an investment firm. It helped me express myself! Changed my life!
Summer Search is an amazing program with amazing individuals. To be in Summer Search is to gain a second family, a family that inspires, motivates, and emboldens every action you take. Even if you lose touch they are always there to catch you, heal you, and make you the leader that the work needs.
S.S. helped me through a turbulent time in my life with the help and mentoring and two phenomenal readership enrichment trips. Something that S.S. did for me to help me to be what I am today! I graduated in 2003 but continue to donate to and volunteer with Summer Search and I also serve on the alumni board.
