Summer Search North Bay

Summer Search is a year-round program that offers mentoring, scholarships to summer experiences, and college advising to students beginning their sophomore year of high school. We partner with schools, community organizations, and families to work with students to strengthen the skills they need to thrive in school and in life. Often the first in their families to earn a college degree, our alumni lead the way and become socially responsible community leaders.
