Derek Jeter & Summer Discovery - Turn 2 Foundation Partnership

On October 25, 2016, Summer Discovery associates attended the 20th Annual Turn 2 Foundation Dinner.  This event honored the 2016 graduating class of Jeter’s Leaders. Summer Discovery has partnered with the Turn 2 Foundation since 2009 to offer Jeter’s Leaders program scholarships at leading colleges and universities in the United States. Summer Discovery associates were deeply impacted by the event and came away proud of our partnership!
