SEO's Response to COVID-19

Underserved populations have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, and SEO participants are overwhelmingly from those communities hardest hit.

Nevertheless, SEO’s staff team and young people are as resilient and invigorated as ever. Currently, we have almost 1,100 SEO Scholars attending public high schools in New York City and San Francisco – with nearly 1,000 in NYC alone – and an additional 900+ studying at colleges around the nation. We have more than 420 interns representing SEO Career at one of our 80+ corporate and Wall Street partners, over 100 Fellows representing SEO Law at 40 partner firms, and 35+ Fellows in SEO’s Alternative Investments program.

Despite the circumstances, SEO and SEO participants persevere. SEO remains dedicated to and inspired by the incredible spirit of our participants as they continue to work towards college graduation and professional success. Read more to see how SEO has reimagined our day-to-day to ensure the continued success of our programs and participants.
