Please join us for an inspiring talk with Hermese Velasquez, UMass Amherst Class of 2009 alumna and executive director of Summer Search Boston. Hermese, herself a student alumna of Summer Search, will provide an overview of the Jamaica Plain non-profitís successful formula for closing the opportunity gap by helping students from low-income backgrounds overcome long odds to become college-educated leaders who give back to their communities.

 

While only about 25 percent of urban US high school graduates finish college, 71 percent of those mentored by Summer Search earn a college degree. Whatís the secret? Hermese will reveal the details...and we think youíll leave hopeful and inspired.  We look forward to seeing you!
