As we approach the holiday season, most people begin to practice gratitude and hope to share this feeling with the many family and friends that they spend time with. But, in the middle of a global pandemic, the holidays may look and feel a bit different due to Social Distancing restrictions; however, that doesn’t mean the concept of gratitude needs to be forgotten! Here at Summer Discovery, we have a lot to be thankful for and we wanted to share that with you.
We are thankful for our University Partners because without their support, we would not be able to provide you with cool and unique ways to spend your summer. We have programs across the United States and even around the world. From our partners at UCLA to Georgetown University and The Hult Business School in London to Yale – NUS Singapore, and everywhere in between have provided us with opportunity to give you one of the best summers of your life!
We are thankful for our scholarship partners, such as Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation, The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, Minds Matters, Noble Network, and the Reacher Higher Foundation for supporting students who would not be able to attend one of our programs without their assistance. Each year, we have a group of students from these organizations attend one of our many programs and get to have the time of their life thanks to these partners!
We are thankful for our Referral Partners, Independent Educational Consultants and School Counselors who work endlessly to introduce our program to their students and assist them in attending one of our many programs. Without them, some of our alumni and current students would have never heard of Summer Discovery or attended one of our many programs, and they would have missed out on one of the greatest experiences of their life!
We are thankful for our Summer Staff who help us run our programs year after year, some of them for over 20 years! Our Summer Staff are some of the coolest people on campus because they really build a relationship with our students and help make our on-campus experience what it is. Our Summer Staff range from Professional Educators to Recent College Grads and everyone in between! We are so thankful for their late nights and early mornings, always filled with the brightest smiles and highest energy levels!
We are thankful for our Full-Time Staff because they are some of the true unsung heroes at Summer Discovery. Whether its our IT Team who help us successfully open our applications, Summer Discovery Online, or assist us with working from home; our Summer Program Consultants who help families throughout the entire application process starting from picking the perfect way to spend Summer all the way through enrolling in a program, our Campus Specialists who work tirelessly year round to make sure we are ready for Summer and then help ensure that their plans on campus are a success, and everyone in between who helps make Summer Discovery one of the best places to work!
We are thankful for our alumni and current students because without them, we cannot continue to do what we do! If you are an alumni of one of our Summer Programs or Teen Tours, we’d love to stay connected with you and would like to invite you to join our Official Summer Discovery and Musiker Teen Tours Alumni Network!
