Review for Summer Search, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I arrived in the U.S. in 2000, found Summer Search, went to a summer camp MH in summer between junior and senior year. I learned my English/most of it at least there. I met amazing people and because of Summer Search I was nominated for Posse Foundation full tuition and went to Hamilton College.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I learned how to see an outside world/outside circle, take chances and don't be shy to ask or try. I graduated from a top college! First one in my family!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do very similar activities, just improve the connection among students before they graduate. I also make sure there are more events with current Summer Search students and the alumni.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

going to MH and learning English, making contacts, meeting great students, who ust need to be seen and recognized or given an opportunity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

sweet, strong, caring, trustworthy, challenging, brave, mentors

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

give more opportunities to more students

Ways to make it better...

I could be here for a whole weekend and knew more people, more adventure programs for the first day to break the ice--have a great network with businessmen and organizers.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial need, putting the words out

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Client Served & I was a student in the Summer Search Programs and graduated in 2002.
